Fresno State wide receiver Davante Adams is one of the least talked about prospects that could make a significant impact in his rookie year. He is one of the most solid receivers coming up in this draft and could immediately become a team’s #2 wide receiver.
Davante Adams stands 6’2″ tall and weighs in at 212 pounds. He has the height and frame that NFL teams look for in a wide receiver. He uses that body well in the receiving game, maneuvering his body to create separation. Once he gets that space, he has the leaping ability and soft hands to beat even the most skilled cornerbacks. Sadly, he didn’t face elite competition at Fresno State, so he may look a bit better on tape at the college level than in the NFL.
Adams also found himself in a great position at Derek Carr’s go-to guy at Fresno State. With Carr leaving Fresno State this year, Adams decided to follow him to the pros.
26 games played
- 233 catches
- 3031 receiving yards
- 38 receiving touchdowns
- Excellent leaping ability
- Sturdy frame
- Great hands
- Fearless in traffic
- Top speed is not ideal
- Played against weak competition
- Needs to be more physical when blocking
Fit For The Vikings
The Vikings already have Jennings and Patterson, but could always look to upgrade upon guys like Jerome Simpson or Rodney Smith.
Adams should be a lock to be a second round selection in the draft. If he begins falling into the beginning of the 3rd round, the Vikings should consider using their pick on him to help bolster the wide receiving group.
