Draft Analyst Ethan Young: S Jamal Adams Not Worth Even A First Rounder?

Jamal Adams is a much better tackler than Malik Hooker. If Hooker let's up a catch he better learn how to drag down the receiver. That won't happen right away because honestly Hooker is one of the worst tacklers I've ever seen. If he can develop that Ed Reed presence of making QBs scared to throw it on him or even a Earl Thomas, he'll be worth a number 2 overall. I'd take Adams before Hooker honestly. Good luck to you if you're name is Hooker and you let up a catch underneath to Julio Jones, he'll make you look foolish as fug.

 

This guy should just stick to his day job, he sucks at analyzing talent. So he picked a couple of mistakes to highlight what he thinks Adams' weaknesses are. I bet that you can find more positive film than negative. Even more than Hooker, and that's saying a lot.

I think every NFL prospect is going to have more good film than bad. That's kind of a given.

I'm reevaluating Adams too, I just don't think he has pro bowl or all pro upside. What's his ceiling? An above average starter? Shouldn't we want more? His best pro comparison is Kam Chancellor. Kam is good, but I expect a players best case scenario to be better than that.

His comparison has been around a poor man's Weddle when you consider he's not the enforcing type, and even that is a slight stretch.

He doesn't contain the solid tackling consistency you want to see out of your strong safety. He does flash potential, but Ethan does bring a valid point that he also has plenty of bad from where the good came from.

I like Adams, but it blows my mind that half the Huddle would seemingly take him over Fournette.

I did it at first, but Adams is not an investment on defense worth taking over a offensive weapon like LF7 to help Cam.  The only way I would flip if it was some injury concerns.

Malik Hooker is better fit for the Panthers with Coleman and the LB corp. 

But again Fournete / OJ Howard > Hooker

Interesting you posted this, Ethan gives a lot of great insight and just won some up and coming draft analyst award too. He certainly made me rethink my opinion of adams

I'd still be fine with him but i really want obi in r2 or baker safety wise
