|Draft Prediction:||Second Round|
2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State
Just three years removed from high school. Great ball skills. Consistent and reliable hands. Catches everything near him, including surprisingly difficult catches. Elite hand-eye coordination. Average straight line speed. Good leaper, explosive. Needs to add more strength. Can be thrown off his route when covered in press-man. Will make for a valuable No. 2 possession receiver. Highpoints the ball really well. Just seems to have a knack for coming down with the football despite some certain athletic limitations.
A bit slow changing gears. Slow in and out of his breaks. Needs to add more suddenness and a little more savvy to his route-running. Still has plenty of room on his frame to add more functional strength and bulk. Just enough speed to be a deep threat. Willing to work the middle. More effort needed when run-blocking.
Adams projects as a second round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: At just 21 years old, Adams will have an extra year to provide dynasty owners. He has the size and long-term potential to blossom into a No. 1 WR. Due to concerns about his raw route-running in the short-term, it is hard to imagine a scenario where he makes an immediate impact since he is unlikely to crack the top of any depth chart.
