Fresno State WR Davante Adams leaning toward NFL Draft
Fresno State is likely losing wide receiver Davante Adams, the nation's leader in several receiving categories, to the NFL Draft.
The nation’s leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns appears ready for the NFL.
Fresno State wide receiver Davante Adams is leaning toward declaring for the NFL Draft, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation.
Adams, a redshirt sophomore, told a Fresno official that he’s favoring the move despite his NFL draft advisory board grade not yet arriving to the school.
Nothing is official and he could return but Fresno is expecting Adams will join his quarterback, senior Derek Carr, to the pros.
Adams' production at Fresno was nothing short of ridiculous, leading receivers in catches (131), receiving yards (1,718) and touchdowns (24) by a wide margin despite Fresno missing a regular season game because of September weather in Colorado.
The 6-foot-2, 216-pound Adams was especially effective on deep balls and screen passes in an offense that threw the ball about 50 times per game. CBS Sports draft anslyst Rob Rang has a second-round grade on Adams.
Staying a year could help Adams, who turns 21 today, hone his downfield blocking and route-running but might be considered a risk without Carr throwing him the ball.
