Green Bay Packers select Davante Adams in second round


 

Davante Adams, a 6-1, 212-pound wide receiver out of Fresno State, was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the sixth round.

Here’s what nfl.com has to say about Adams:

STRENGTHS

Has a rangy build with good body length and secure hands to palm the ball and make difficult one-handed grabs. Tracks and adjusts to the ball very well downfield. Extends outside his frame and plucks the ball out of the air. Natural hands-catcher. Terrific athlete with good leaping ability and anticipation to properly time jumps and highpoint the ball. Wins jumpballs in the red zone and shows very good hand-eye coordination to take the ball away from defenders. Exceptional production. Has a 39 1/2-inch vertical jump.

WEAKNESSES

Lacks ideal functional playing strength to consistently beat the jam and can get hung up at the line. Long strider and is not sudden out of his breaks. Production was inflated from a quick-hitting, lateral passing game.

Comparing favorably to a poor man’s Michael Crabtree, Adams possesses very intriguing upside to be groomed.
