The Georgia product got onto the field in 10 games his true freshman year, catching three passes for 18 yards against Tennessee-Martin and making four tackles on special teams. In 2009, he became a focus on offense, catching a school-record 60 passes for 997 yards (16.6 yard-average) and 10 touchdowns and winning MVP honors with a 12-catch, 142-yard effort against Northwestern in the team's Outback Bowl win.
Though he had fewer catches (52) and touchdowns (seven) in 2010, his yardage total nearly stayed the same (952) because of the deep-ball throwing of Newton.
Though Adams has been productive over the past two years, scouts have concerns about his game. His slight build, average speed and inconsistent hands keep him from being an elite talent. But with hard work, he could follow a similar path to NFL success that Buffalo's Stevie Johnson had as a playmaker in 2010.
Strengths: Tall receiver with exceptional length able to take advantage of matchups against smaller defenders downfield. Gets up high to snatch passes out of the air, wins jump-ball opportunities down the sideline. Shows some quickness with s shimmy move off the line. Complements the vertical threat with quick enough feet to run an effective out or comeback route. Has a burst coming out of a route to gain separation. Tracks the ball over his shoulder and continues to run without slowing down. Willing to come back to help his quarterback as a receiver or blocker downfield.
Weaknesses: Extremely thin upper- and lower-body builds, will struggle to fight off veteran cornerbacks downfield or stay on his route. Only adequate deep speed, strides and lacks second gear to accelerate past defenders after the catch. Not a reliable receiver, simply allows balls to go through his hands when feeling a hit or otherwise losing concentration. Body-catches passes thrown at his numbers. Fails to get his head around in time to see the ball at times. Takes a few steps to get to top speed. Does not use his hands well to defeat the jam, few college corners have the length to attempt it. Benefitted from misdirection and defense's focus on Newton. Gives some effort as a run blocker, but lacks strength, flexibility and footwork to sustain."
Positive: Explosive receiver who stretches the field and can take it the distance. Quickly releases off the line, displays a burst of speed, and can turn it on in a single step. Sells all his moves, adjusts to the errant throw, and looks the ball into his hands. Possesses effective eye/hand coordination. Plays with body control, makes difficult over-the-shoulder catches. Consistently gets downfield behind defenders and plays faster than his forty time. Gets vertical and fights to make the difficult catch. Elusive, gets separation from defenders, and uses his frame to shield away opponents. Quickly gets into breaks and runs sharp routes.
Negative: Does a bit of unnecessary body catching and does not always catch the ball cleanly. Loses out in battles. Does not show strength running after the catch. Times poorly in the forty.
Analysis: Adams made an immediate impact once he stepped in with the starting team as a sophomore and has proven to be a big play receiver who makes tough catches down the field. He possesses the skills, both athletic and football, to be a productive third receiver in the NFL and should see action as a rookie this fall."
Negatives: Very thin, has a wiry frame and appears weak... Has trouble getting off the line of scrimmage against press coverage... Not great after the catch, isn't a natural runner... A bit of a long strider, is not quick in short areas... Poor blocker, very weak and has trouble sustaining blocks... Solely a possession receiver... Limited upside due to lack of speed and quickness."
Weaknesses: Thin receiver who will struggle to defeat press coverage off the LOS. Good, but not great speed.
Projection: Sixth rounder. Adams would have benefited from another year at Auburn, but he can compete for a roster spot and develop into a good #3 or #4 receiver."
