Bio: 
Four-year starter who spent most of his time with the Wolfpack at right guard. Earned Second Team All-ACC honors in 2016 and 2017. Started his NC State career at center and saw action there as a true freshman before moving to guard.
Pos: 
Tough, durable lineman with size limitations. Explosive at the point, fires into blocks and works hard to get a pad on opponents. Effective as a position blocker, stays square and seals defenders from the action. Smart, keeps his head on a swivel and shows outstanding vision. Bends his knees, blocks with proper pad level and anchors in pass protection.
Neg: 
Lacks a dominant base and struggles finishing blocks. Overextends and occasionally ducks his head. Lack of height is a limiting factor and will be a red flag with some teams.
Analysis: 
Adams was a terrific college lineman and is an intelligent prospect who gets the most from his ability. He’s a hard worker who will be downgraded due to his height but could have a long career as a backup on Sundays.
