“He is hyper-aggressive in run support, flying upfield and slipping past blockers to provide the Tigers with almost another linebacker at the point of attack. Belying his lack of starting experience, Adams shows impressive awareness to sniff out misdirection and is a terrific open-field tackler..” –Rob Rang (@robrang), 9/19/16
Jamal Adams is in a great position for this draft, as NFL teams are all trying to find that game-changing safety that can not only cover the deep part of the secondary, but also provide superb run support, and versatility. Open field predators like Adams are at a premium right now, and Jamal Adams rare skill combinations combining the range of a center fielder with the diagnosing and tackling ability will cause his stock to sore. Always around the football.
