- 2013 Michigan State Pro Day: Michigan State football's Johnny Adams played half the season with injury...Former Michigan State cornerback Johnny Adams was back in front of the media on Wednesday, perspiring as though he was lined up one-on-one across from Detroit Lions' star Calvin Johnson. Adams, who had not met with local media since his final home game on Nov. 17, can be forgiven if he's a little gun-shy; some NFL Draft reports on him have been less than flattering.
But an NFL scout who spoke with MLive on a condition of anonymity said Adams graded out higher than any of the three Michigan State underclassmen who declared early for the draft. "He's a second-third round grade,'' the scout said. "I was watching more film on him, and I missed on his athletic ability. He hasn't done anything to hurt himself since the end of the season, ran a 4.4 at the (NFL) combine. "Catching the ball, he's not the most natural guy, but he has the movement and he's a competitive guy.''
"I can compete, I have great feet, great hands and that's what I showed,'' Adams said. "Right now I'm waiting on the process and teams getting back with me. "I wouldn't say there's any pressure in the process, I'm just enjoying the process.'' - Mike Griffith, Michigan Live
