According to Adam Schefter, the Patriots have added another free agent to their upgraded front seven.
Adams has good size and was a versatile prospect coming out Auburn and the SEC, always flashed potential. Pro Football Focus mentioned some of his strengths in their scouting report:
- Exceptional instincts, displays good awareness to find the football.
- Understands when to disengage, keeping his body free to make plays.
- Displays high effort, chasing plays downfield.
- Playmaker when given a solo chance heads up, might be best at 0 or 2 technique.
Adams fits the Patriots mold for their interior defensive linemen, but his ability to two-gap, a negative in his scouting profile, will determine his chances of making a roster push this summer.
It's already a much deeper defensive line group and the training camp competition, with rookies added to the mix, will be interesting.
