2017 NFL Draft Profile: Montravius Adams

Montravius Adams, Auburn
6-4, 304
Adams was a top five national Defensive Tackle recruit out of high school in Georgia before attending Auburn. He earned third team All-SEC as a junior, and was named second team All-SEC as a senior. He spent four years with the Tigers.

The Good
Very quick and explosive off of the snap.
Busts the gap with ease.
Very disruptive, and forces QBs to make mistakes.
Very powerful lower half.
Has enough quickness to be effective in pursuit.
Plays with solid pad level, uses pads as a battering ram off of the snap.
The Bad
Has not always played with a consistent motor. Seems to turn it on and off.
Junior year was a real letdown.
Comes into contact with his head down too often.
Hand work is not good enough at this level.
Does not always use his arm extension, lets blockers get into his body.
Rides the wave too often, and is slow to disengage.
Final Overview
Adams is another frustrating player that does not always play to his potential. He tried to coast through his junior season, and it blew up in his face, and he did not flip the switch again because he wanted to, but because he had to. Still, he is a disruptive enough force to be able to make some plays at the next level, but he has to stay motivated, and coaches do not like players that they constantly have to get a fire under. Either he will want it and succeed, or he won't and he will fail.
