A lot of schools like to claim that they are “DBU”. Few schools have the resume that LSU possesses.
From the likes of Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu of the Arizona Cardinals to Eric Reid of the San Francisco 49ers, LSU has put plenty of talented defensive backs in the NFL over the years.
And junior safety Jamal Adams might be the next talented LSU defensive back to be a top NFL talent.
According to Walterfootball.com sources Adams’s talent level is equal to that of West Virginia’s Karl Joseph and Florida’s Keanu Neal, safeties who were selected by the Oakland Raiders and Atlanta Falcons in the first round of this year’s NFL Draft.
Adams, listed at 6-foot-1 and 211-pounds, finished with 67 tackles and 4 interceptions in his sophomore year that resulted in Second-Team All-SEC honors. If he has a similar junior season, he could join the likes of Peterson and Reid as LSU defensive backs taken in the first round. Reid was the last LSU defensive back taken in the first round, when the 49ers used the 18th pick of the 2013 NFL Draft on the safety.
