Davante Adams is coming off a stellar season where he put up video game numbers in receptions,(131) receiving yards, (1,718) and touchdowns(24)– all of which lead the entire nation. The reason he isn’t a house hold name yet is because he played for Fresno State, a school that competes against questionable competition.

Adams is a big target, standing at 6’2 and weighing 216 pounds. He’s projected to be taken somewhere in the 2nd or 3rd round, meaning the Chiefs likely won’t have much of a chance to take him unless he slips further. Some of the things that are keeping him out of the first round are his lack of “elite” speed that is necessary to get separation from DB’s in the NFL, and the fact that he dominated lesser competition in college.

Personally, I feel like the competition argument can be a bit over blown, especially at the college level. All we do know is that this kid has put up some ridiculous numbers and does have potential to be a good, if not great, receiver at the next level.
