One NFL executive doesn’t think former LSU safety Jamal Adams will be a game changer as a professional.
In an interesting post by NFL Media’s Lance Zierlein, an unidentified NFC executive is quoted as saying Adams is a “good player” but that Adams might not go as high in the 2017 NFL Draft as predicted.
Here’s part of what the NFC executive told Zierlein:
“I don’t think Jamal Adams is going to go as early as I see people mocking him. He’s a good player but I don’t think he’s a game changer.”
The executive went on to say that Adams isn’t better than New York Giants safety Landon Collins, who went No. 33 overall last year. Of course, so much about judging talent is subjective. But it’s fascinating to hear the inside scoop about a player like Adams from an executive.
As revealed in the quote, many expect Adams to go high in the 2017 NFL Draft. He had 1 interception and 4 passes defensed in 2016. With the right team, he could become a dynamic presence in the secondary in a short time. Finding success in the NFL is about finding the right fit.
It will be fun to see where Adams ends up. We’ll learn soon.
