04/12/2012 - Big news for those of you who are both Jets and Lions fans: This past Monday senior offensive tackle Jeff Adams had a private workout at the New York Jets' facility. Over the past few months, Adams has been working hard to convince NFL scouts he is worth drafting. On March 8, he participated in Northwestern's pro day. He later tried to improve his scores at the Baker Athletics Complex in front of scouts from the Jets. According to NFL.com, based on the strength of these workouts, Adams may have become a sixth- or seventh-round draft pick-not bad for an Ivy League o-linean. - Rebeka Cohan, The Spectrum
Positives: Possesses a long, lean, athletic body with plenty of room for additional muscle mass. Long arms (34 3/8). Quick off the snap. Naturally light on his feet and flashes good flexibility and balance. Good straight-line speed in getting to the second level and the ability to adjust to defenders.
Negatives: A definite project. Lacks the strength and the sand in his pants at this time to handle NFL competition. Too often is pushed back into the pocket during pass protection because he bends at the waist rather than at the knees. Relies more on precise angles than physicality in the running game.
