LSU S Jamal Adams ran an unofficial 4.33 forty yard dash at his pro day on Wednesday.
Adams, a projected top 10 pick, ran a 4.56 at the combine back in the first week of March. After this showing in Baton Rouge, his stock continues to go up with the NFL draft just 22 days away.
The LSU product is arguably the best all around safety in this year’s draft class. His physicality and instincts separates him from other’s like Malik Hooker and Jabrill Peppers. He can play inside the box and his versatility allows him to cover the slot receiver.
Adams did not run a second forty dash.
He has natural instincts at the position, the versatility to cover in the slot and the physicality to impact the run game. Adams could be the first safety to come off the board in the NFL draft and I believe his style of play can help change the identity of a pro secondary.– ESPN’s Matt Bowen on Adams.
As I have said before, Adams would be a perfect fit for the Bears at 3. He’s a playmaker. His presence on the Bears would instantly change the culture on defense. The safety position is one of the Bears biggest needs and they have the chance to upgrade it at 3.
