Metric Analysis: Jamal Adams has a great profile for NFL success. Above average athleticism to go with above average market share production. Where he falls short is in not having elite athleticism and only starter threshold explosiveness for a strong safety. Nor does Adams have elite level pass deflection market share as free safety. He’s the best example of good, not great safety in either strong or free.

And the bottom-line is elite safeties have elite combinations of traits. Adams may be above average across the board. But that doesn’t make him elite. He’s not a safety I’d consider a top 5 or 10 prospect automatically. Thus, I’d be skeptical of those who push for him that high in this draft class compared to better values at other positions.
