OT Mike Adams-Ohio State
Height: 6’8
Weight: 310 lbs.
Projection: 1st Round
Grade: 7.0 (Grading Scale)

Very tall prospect who has ideal arm length for the LT position…does a good job getting set up quickly off the ball…flexible OT who can bend well and does a good job staying on balance…Good quickness and burst out of his stance when asked to seal the edge or get out in front of a screen or toss play…Delivers an effective punch that he uses to keep more aggressive pass rushers away…does a good job protecting his body and not giving defenders spots to bull rush him…is at his best when asked to initiate contact in the running game…locks on and drives his man off the line consistently.

Doesn’t have the necessary strength to handle the bull rush at the NFL level…seems to struggle more with quick twitch DE’s who can go inside and outside…will get caught guessing at times about what his opponent is going to do and will find himself over compensating and getting beat…does not finish as many blocks as we would like to see…still has footwork issues that at times have him looking uncoordinated as he tries to slide…speed rushers can catch him lunging at them and get around him when he does that.

Film Room Notes:
Adams v. Michigan
Adams v. Illinois
