Mike Adams
Round 2, Pick 56
Position: T
Class:  Sr
School: Ohio State
HT: 6'7"
WT: 300 lbs.
40 Time: 5.28
Conference: Big Ten
Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors after his senior and junior seasons. Suspended for five games as a senior for his role in Ohio State?s tattoo scandal.

Positives: Large, athletic tackle with an enormous amount of upside. Bends his knees, blocks with leverage and stays square. Keeps his feet moving throughout the action, strong at the point and easily controls defenders. Immediately gets his hands up, jolts opponents with good punch and keeps his head on a swivel. Quickly sets up in pass protection and displays solid footwork sliding out off the edge. Stays square and seals defenders from the action. Possesses a large, thick frame yet easily moves about the field.

Negatives: Really does not finish blocks on running plays. Not naturally light on his feet and would not fit a conventional zone blocking scheme. Lacks classic footwork for a left tackle.

Analysis: Adams is a large lineman that offers a terrific combination of power and athleticism. He possesses a great amount of upside yet needs to polish his game and improve his run blocking .

Projection: 2nd
