Montravius Adams NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’4 304lbs
- Powerful leg drive
Analysis: Montravius Adams was the former national top-five defensive tackle high school recruit reached his potential in 2016, earning second-team all-conference honors (8.5 TFL, 4.5 sacks). Adams was a three-year starter after contributing as a true freshman (20 tackles, sack), lining up with the ones in 2014 (8.0 TFL, three sacks, INT) and earning third-team All-SEC honors as a junior (three TFL, 2.5 sacks). Before the 2016 season, Adams was labeled as a bust at Auburn. He fires out low out of his stance and with good explosiveness. Springs into gaps to stress guards and split double teams. Usually first into neutral zone. Disruptive when working the gaps. Burly lower half with good thickness through his hips and thighs. Powerful leg drive pushes him through blocker’s shoulder and into the backfield. Motor seemed to be revved more consistently in 2016 than in 2015. Pursues from backside with hustle.
- Lowers head out of stance, losing sight of play
- Needs to use hands more
- Stays with blockers too often
- Labeled as an “underachiever”
Analysis: Adams strikes with his head first and his eyes down losing sight of the play. He doesn’t utilize his hands well enough to keep himself clean. Needs to improve punch and extension to add value as a two-gap tackle. Sticks on blocks and labors to disengage. Short stepper with limited lateral effectiveness as pass rusher. Active as rusher but fails to stress the edge often enough. Has carried label as underachiever at times. Has talent but needs to more consistently play to it.
