TD Jamal Adams Scouting Notes

Jamal Adams*


Former CB maintains the speed and hips to play man to man. Smart and aware in coverage and rarely flagged. Long armed with quick feet. Gets to top speed in a blink coming downhill. A talker who’s constantly communicating with teammates and opponents. Passionate leader who prepares like a pro and is a leader on and off the field.


He can overrun plays and doesn't always wrap up. Appears smaller than his listed size and isn’t generally a forceful tackler.


I think Adam's passion and talent for the game is Ed Reed-esque and he's one of the surest prospects in this class. He's a footballer thru and thru. He's as effective in the box as playing the deep half and he can match up in the slot or out wide in man. His versatility and character will be an asset. However, despite his measurables, he's plays slightly undersized and must become a more reliable open field tackler.

Pro Comparison: taller Earl Thomas
