Completely agree. There are some concerns from a few games against top competition and him coming from a spread offense but he's got all the athletic ability in the world you look for in game-changer wideouts.

I've seen him picked in the 1st in a handful of mocks (I believe McShay was one)

Yeah same, I've seen and read anywhere from late first to early third. I can't believe he falls out of the second though.

huge fan of Adams. the best climb the ladder, go high point the football WR in the draft. he can catch in traffic, has really good body control, and decpetive speed to get vertical, plus a good vertical jump. put up video game numbers, and i think he comes off the board in the 2nd round. i wanted to watch more of this guy, so i watched Derek Carr cutups, and Adams caught a TD in all 12 games that i watched. DG has said we need TD makers, and we also need RED ZONE threats. this guy is both.

 

how much better than kb at climbing? because of ive seen kb climb pretty high at some points.

Adams might not can get as high as KB because he has a larger  catching radius( KB 6'5, DA 6'2), but Adams wins more on a consistent level when high pointing the ball. he is by far the best fade runner, in the red zone.

That guy has a pretty decent mock.  He has Moses going in the 1st which I see happening as well.

OBJ should be on this list as well. Pretty dominate at the catch point for his size.

Really starting to get on board the Adams bandwagon at 28 if we go receiver. My dream would be for us to trade back 8-10 spots and still pick him up but that is risky and Gettleman doesn't seem like the type to move around the board. 

 

I love his ability to just flat out make plays both in the field and in the red zone. He is exactly the type of receiver Cam needs to be groomed and to grow. It is important to remember that he is only 21, and will continue to put on some mass and grow into his frame ever more. 

 

I think Davante Adams runs better than expected this weekend and has a solid combine which should solidify him as a late-first round talent in which case I can get all the way on board with him. Once this kid matures physically after a few more years and is coached up he may very well be a top 3 receiver out of this class and a better than average NFL receiver that has number one potential.

I like Adams, but I dont believe that any of the projected receivers to be available at no28 are more valuable than ASJ or Jace Amaro.

 

I was against taking a TE, but atm I believe that you have to go BPA. I'll take ASJ or Amaro in a heart beat right now.

I haven't done my first Mock yet or the research to go with it, but based on what was coming out of Carolina in the last draft. If one of the top tackles doesn't fall, I wouldn't be surprised to see them go TE in the first if someone is there that they feel fits the system. 

 

 

However, a bunch of this year's draft TE's are more like glorified Big Slot WR's then your more traditional Inline TE's.

I like him and he has some wiggle to his game. He looks like from film to have some run after the catch skills.

Know what? I've re-watched some stuff on Adams and want him on the Panthers the most out of a lot of guys in this draft.  He's giving us a legitimate threat. 

 

His style is just epic.

 

Per: http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/davante-adams-1.html#all_receiving

 

*2012 Fresno State MWC SO WR 13 102 1312 12.9 14         102 1312 12.9 14 *2013 Fresno State MWC SO WR 13 131 1719 13.1 24         131 1719 13.1 24

 

 

He get's open, has great leaping ability and concentration, strong, can out-tough defenders regularly.  He plays with the combo of finesse and fight I like.

 

I hope he's available at 28.  I'd have to imagine the Chiefs will at least be interested.
