Vernon Adams, Jr.
Vernon Adams is the more intriguing player of this group of quarterbacks. Adams played college football at Washington State University and later transferred to the University of Oregon for more opportunity to excel. And excel he did.
Adams ran a 4.83 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, but do not be fooled by this apparent slower-than-normal time. His quickness and ability to scramble and get out of the pocket should allow him to elude defenders. Terrific in short and intermediate passing routes, he wowed scouts at the college Shrine All-Star game by showing polished skills in the pocket. Adams’ potential projects as high as Seattle Seahawks’ quarterback, Russell Wilson, who is becoming a perennial all-pro since his rookie season.
Scouts have been critical of Adams’ size but given Wilson’s early success, teams will keep a close eye on him. With the Broncos ability to utilize play-action and roll-outs, Adams could become a successful NFL quarterback.
It would not be surprising looks at Adams if the team looks at Adams in the fifth to seventh rounds.
