Born: 12/31/1992 Pinewood , SC

College: South Carolina

Experience: 3rd season

High School: Scott's Branch HS [Summerton, SC]; Fork Union Mil. Acad. [VA]









Draft 2016

Pick No.184

Selected By: New York Giants

Round: 6

Pick (Overall): 9 (184)

Pick Analysis: Adams took over as the primary target after Rory Anderson went down with an injury in 2014 and excelled, using his height and strider's speed to finish with 21 catches for 279 yards and one score on the year. Even in a year in which the Gamecocks struggled to move the ball through the air (they ranked in the bottom quarter of the FBS), he set career highs with 28 catches for 421 yards and three touchdowns. The former star high school basketball player has the physical skills to excel as a receiver and blocker in the NFL.
