NFL.com’s Kimberly Jones reports Adams holds the No. 1 spot on the board for “at least one team.” But that team is too far down in the draft order to have a chance at Adams.
“Wish list,” a person with the team said of Adams.
Adams is widely regarded as a top-five player in the 2017 NFL Draft, and CBS Sports ranks him as the fifth overall prospect in the class. He had 76 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, 1 interception and 4 passes defended for the Tigers in 2016. LSU head coach Ed Orgeron said Adams has the potential to be All-Pro in the NFL.
SEC Country projects Adams will be the fifth overall pick, going to the Tennessee Titans, on April 27 in the NFL draft.
Even after an underwhelming performance at the combine, Adams’ stock isn’t expected to drop much, if at all.
“I feel like I’m the best guy in the draft, I definitely feel like I should be a No. 1 pick,” Adams said at the combine, according to NFL.com’s Chase Goodbread.
Garrett likely sealed his position as the No. 1 overall pick at the combine. However, expect Adams to come off the board soon after that.
