Notes:
A First-Team All-American and All-ACC member in 2006...Was the ACC Defensive Player of the Year as a senior...Last season Adams finished with 62 tackles, 12.5 sacks and 17.5 TFLs...Closed out his career with 28 sacks which tied the school record held by Michael Dean Perry...Is an outstanding athlete...Has an excellent first step...Extremely versatile...Could play linebacker in a 3-4 formation in the NFL...Extremely quick and agile...Eye-popping speed for his size...Has a nose for the quarterback and loves playing in the backfield...Could add some weight to maximize his potential as an every down defensive end...Does not do a good job against the run...Also needs to get stronger...Has trouble with the bigger blockers...Regarded as the top defensive end in this draft class.
