Davante Adams NFL Draft Scouting Report

Davante Adams NFL Position: Wide Receiver
School: Fresno State
Class: Redshirt Sophomore
Height: 6-2
Weight: 212
Draft Stock: 2nd/3rd round; tier two WR




Nobody can deny Davante Adams is a talented receiver who dominated at the college level, but at the end of the day, his college scheme was a perfect showcase which made him look a lot better than he truly is.

Fresno State runs a wide-open offense similar to what Texas Tech runs and ran under Mike Leach with Graham Harrell and Michael Crabtree. While Leach had Harrell and Crabtree, Fresno had Derek Carr and Davante Adams. Ironically, Adams best NFL comparison is Michael Crabtree.

The 6’2” 215 lb. Fresno State product possesses exceptional hands and body control, similar to Crabtree. In addition, Adams effectively uses his body to effectively shield defenders and displays solid physical strength. Unfortunately, Adams lacks the top end speed and acceleration to create consistent separation and become an elite receiver.

After playing in Fresno State’s offense and entering the draft only as a redshirt sophomore, he has several little aspects of his game in which he must fine-tune before he becomes a productive receiver at the next level. While Adams’ quarterback, Derek Carr, looks to become a top ten selection, Adams appears to be headed for a day two selection in a stacked class of wide receivers.
