Bio: 
Two-year starter who led Notre Dame in carries and rushing yards in each of those seasons. Rushed 206 times for 1,430 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior. Carried 158 times for 933 yards and five TDs in 2016. Started three games as a true freshman and rushed for 838 yards and six scores on 116 carries.
Pos: 
Strong, resilient ball carrier best running downhill. Displays solid vision and short-area quickness and runs north and south. Patiently waits for blocks to develop, finds running lanes and keeps his feet moving on contact. Breaks tackles, carries defenders for extra yardage and falls forward when tackled. Helps the quarterback sell ball fakes and shows a burst through the hole. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield.
Neg: 
Must pick up his intensity as a blocker. Not a creative ball carrier who makes defenders miss or improvises.
Analysis: 
Adams is a solid between-the-tackles runner with a bit of a one-dimensional game. He possesses the skills necessary to make a roster as a third back.
