Adams has an agility and quick burst that makes it possible for him to make one move and see daylight. This serves him well as a returner and a slot receiver. He is a natural, savvy ball carrier and displays a smoothness when catching bubble screens and quick passes of that sort. His best trait is his ability to separate at the top of routes even when blanketed. He can stick his foot in the ground to snap out of his breaks. Corners often inadvertently fly by as he snaps off curl routes. He is a patient runner who runs fluidly and even has the athletic ability to change speeds and set corners up in-phase before breaking hard one way to get himself open. He has the long speed to get open deep. He has a professional understanding of how to run routes at his size and stem off the ball to gain separation. He is a very polished receiver, and his athletic ability should serve him well at the next level working out of the slot.


Adams is not a very tough player in traffic, and he uses his body to try to secure the catch too often, which leads to drops. He is hesitant as a blocker and not strong enough to keep corners engaged. He needs to play more physical at to be effective at the next level.
