Jamal Adams

Strengths:

  • Leadership
  • High football IQ
  • Solid tackler
  • Coverage skills
  • Great against the run

Analysis: Jamal Adams is a natural-born leader of men. Well-built. Will not hesitate for one second as a hitter. He is hyper-aggressive in run support, flying upfield and slipping past blockers to provide the Tigers with almost another linebacker at the point of attack. Belying his lack of starting experience, Adams shows impressive awareness to sniff out misdirection and is a terrific open-field tackler. Unlike most defenders with his seemingly reckless, kamikaze style of play, Adams never seems out of control. He plays on the balls of his feet and has the flexible joints to change directions and accelerate fluidly. Already possessing good size for the position, Adams plays even bigger than he looks, offering an explosive pop on contact with most of his stops. Intelligent field general. Gets secondary aligned properly. Plays with plus balance in coverage. Pattern reader who can digest combinations. Alert for misdirection keys from offense. Party crasher on screen plays. Can handle coverage responsibilities against tight ends. Five interceptions and two recovered fumbles over last two seasons at LSU. Special-teams terror as freshman and sophomore, notching 21 tackles. No penalties in 2016. Father, George, was a first-round pick of the Giants in 1984.

Weaknesses:

  • Gets a little ‘handsy’
  • Average play speed
  • Aggressive play bites him vs play action

Analysis: I’ll be honest, these weaknesses were difficult for me to find on tape. I’m really picking at straws here.¬†¬†Jamal Adams can get ‘handsy’ and too willing to clamp onto receivers down the field. Hard-charging downhill, but a little stiff when asked to retreat. Long speed appears to be average on tape. Eyes drop when targets approach his area. Anticipation is average, limiting his range as a center-fielder. Will give away some interceptions due to drops.
