has made 28 starts since his first season with the program in 2014… led the team with 22 kick returns for 534 yards (24.3 ypr)…named to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List prior to the season.

Twitter says he's a decent returner, so I guess there's the special teams help we've been looking for

So the whole "targeting great athletes" thing seems to be totally out the window.

Not crazy about this one, but what do I know? Probably a return guy

Not a terrible athlete, but dang is he skinny!

I think it is time to turn on the Auto Draft.

STRENGTHS Plays fast. Keeps a crisp pace in his routes and and is able to glide past defenders who underestimate him. Shifty to avoid would-be jams and route redirection. Can adjust to throws behind him. Quick to drop feet after catch near sideline. Competitive runner after the catch with a surprising burst. Shows some lateral escapability and a nasty spin move. Keeps feet moving through tackle attempts and is slippery to bring down. Averaged just over 25 yards per kick return while at South Florida.

WEAKNESSES Thin frame with skinny legs. Play strength could be a big concern. Will be challenged to secure passes through contact on the next level. Has small hands and issues with ball security. Drop rate was sky high over sophomore and junior season. Fumbled five times this season on just 90 touches. Production bolstered by wide receiver screens and pop passes. Too thin to hold up as a legitimate blocker in running game.

BOTTOM LINE Tall, thin slot wide receiver with an ability to work both short and deep. Adams wasn't asked to win with his routes and will have to improve in that area. His competitive nature and urgency jumps off the tape when the ball is in his hands, but his drops and fumbles are troubling. Has the traits to make a roster as a kick returner and fourth/fifth wide receiver early on.
