While most of the quarterback chatter remains around guys like Jared Goff or Carson Wentz at No. 1 and 2, followed by a host of other quarterbacks projected anywhere from the late first round to the fifth round, Oregon’s Vernon Adams is currently on the outside looking in.
Adams’ ceiling could be a Russell Wilson-type, whose ability to roll out in coverage and avoid being taken down in the backfield makes him dangerous on its own. Combine his field vision and ability to strike on downfield throws, and Adams could be the real deal with some polishing.
After a relatively up-and-down season at Oregon, the 5’11” prospect enters the NFL Draft as one of the overlooked and possible game-changing prospects. Projected as a seventh-round or free-agent pickup, Adams will land somewhere.
It’s now just a matter of who rolls the dice on him.
