Josh Adams Draft Profile

Josh Adams Draft

 

Strengths:

  • Size
  • Powerful runner
  • Coachable
  • Absorbs contact
  • Breaks through arm tackles
  • Solid build-up speed

Analysis: Josh Adams possesses above average size for the running back position. He is built like a truck with broad shoulders and tree trunks for legs. Your prototypical downhill runner, Adams enjoys success running north-south like a battering ram. If a defender attempts to arm tackle Adams, he can run through it with ease. He runs with a square pad level and always falls forward for extra yardage. He was heavily praised by the Notre Dame coaching staff for his team-first attitude and doing whatever it takes to win. You wouldn’t expect it, but Adams has impressive build up speed measured at 22.37 mph versus North Carolina State. Consistently productive from season to season.

Weaknesses:

  • One trick pony
  • Slow to accelerate
  • Not a weapon in the receiving game
  • Lacks elusiveness
  • Lateral quickness

Analysis: On tape, Josh Adams severely lacks acceleration off the snap–definitely a ‘slow-starter’ and takes a long time to get going. He is known to break tackles, but has trouble right off the snap due to his lack of play speed. He is slow to process traffic and find alternate routes. One speed runner. Lacks the burst to explode through tight creases. He is not built to run outside the tackles–he will make his money driving right into the line. He is unreliable pass catcher. Hands are below average.

Size: 6’2 220lbs
