Bio: 
Two-year starter named Second Team All-AAC in both 2015 and 2016 after setting the school record with 67 receptions, adding 822 yards and five touchdowns along with 231 yards and five scores on the ground as a senior. Made 44 catches for 816 yards and a career-high nine touchdowns as a junior. Started three games in 2014 and caught 23 passes for 323 yards and two touchdowns.
Pos: 
Developing wideout coming off a career campaign. Smooth, fluid and easily adjusts to the errant throw. Displays a burst, plays faster than his 40 time and is very effective running after the catch. Gives effort and goes up in a crowd or with defenders draped on him then uses his frame to shield away opponents. Extends and looks the ball into his hands. Productive running reverses.
Neg: 
One-speed wideout who isn’t a true deep threat. Drops catchable throws on occasion. Struggles in battles and does not always come away with the over-the-shoulder reception.
Analysis: 
Adams was a productive receiver at South Florida and displayed consistent progress in his game the past three years. He has enough ability to make a roster as a fifth receiver and also displays punt-return potential.
