Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State

Mike Adams has been suspended for seven games in his collegiate career. That fact may ultimately hurt his draft stock with some teams, but his pro potential is very good despite being a raw prospect.

Given his elite height and size, Adams certainly passes the eyeball test as a pro prospect. He is the prototypical left tackle prospect who really excels with his footwork and has the talent to improve his technique. Adams will need to grow as a run blocker. He lacks that killer instinct offensive line coaches fall in love with. He will need to correct his techniques as a zone blocker as he sometimes loses his assignment and gets lost out in open space.

The most promising facets to Adams' skill-set are his frame and good feet. He may need an extra year to develop or grow into the position as a rookie, but most every team in the NFL is willing to be patient with a guy his size.

Adams has mixed scouting reviews. Some feel he may never amount to anything more than a solid backup and others list him as a first round pick. Keep an eye on his draft stock as it may become volatile.

Prediction: 2nd Round

Could see him going in the late 1st, but I think that would be a mistake. Adams is an overrated player who plays well when he wants/has to. Has trouble with speed rushers off the edge. Better values will be found in the mid-to-late rounds.
