We've gone through a list of the major candidates for the Panthers at WR. I've seen names like Matthews (who I'm a big fan of), Benjamin, Landry, Robinson (who I'm also a fan of), and others. However, the name I'm seeing left off the list that could very easily be one of the best receivers in this class is Davante Adams.
WHO IS DAVANTE ADAMS? Adams has played WR at an incredible level at Fresno State the past couple of seasons. Sure, he's had a potential top 25 pick in Derek Carr throwing him the ball, but his size, speed, and hands have made him Carr's favorite target. Adams is listed at 6'2 / 216lbs, but at the Combine will probably weigh in closer to 220-222lbs. His got a large body, but can use it effectively.
But, that's not even the best part of Adams. Davante is fast. Faster than you might think. I assume he's going to run around a 4.48-4.5, but, for a guy his size, that's blazing.
There are some concerns about him, which is why he received a third round grade from the Draft Advisory board. He played in Fresno State's fast paced spread offense with Derek Carr throwing him the ball. He also has some trouble, even with his size, blocking downfield. (I don't know if that's a knock or not, though. He's a true playmaker, not a #2 blocking/blue-collar type guy).
But, there's a lot to like about the guy. I absolutely think he'll be there when we choose in the 2nd, barring an incredible Combine (which it's very possible that he has).
