Jamar Adams, SS, Michigan

Jamar Adams has been making plays ever since he set foot on Michigan's campus four years ago. The senior safety tallied 83 tackles this season for the Wolverines, also notching 1.5 tackles for loss, 3 interceptions, and broke up 10 passes in coverage. Adams started all 12 games for a Michigan defense that failed to live up to its preseason hype. Adams however, never failed to carry his share of the load. He has started 33 of his 46 games as a Wolverine with career totals of 163 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 4 interceptions, and 19 passes broken up in coverage. Adams has good height for a safety, at 6'2". He excels in coverage, picking up slot receivers, tight ends, and running backs, all with ease. Adams has slightly above average speed for the position and is as good as anyone in the country at breaking on a ball in the air to deflect the pass. Adams will need to get stronger to help against the run in the NFL. His slender 214 lbs. frame will need to be bulked up. He does however, blitz from the defensive backfield very well. Adams will make a fine reserve safety and with some work and experience, could emerge as an NFL starter someday. Jamar Adams attended the 2008 Senior Bowl, but failed to make a real splash. Adams didn't play poorly, but failed to register a tackle during the game and didn't distinguish himself from the pack during practice. At this point, he's still about the fifth best SS in a weak class at the position.
