Is worth a first round pick? Most NFL draft sites have him going into the NFL as a LB/DE hrybrid. He's got some speed on him as anyone who has seen him return the fumble against Wake can see that. Personally i would hope that slips to the 2nd round but i doubt that he's going to. Probably a top 20 pick this year? Thoughts?

I think he's more like a top 10 pick, IMO. But who really knows?

At least a top ten pick, but I would love to have him on the Dolphins however I don't think he will be around when we pick.

Top 5 pick... 1st defensive player chosen probably.

Wow that good? I didn't think he was a top 5 type player but when i have seen the guy play he looks like a beast. If he could be a hybrid type player i would be more than happy if the Dolphins got him.

I would prefer this draft to be pre-dominantly for the offense. Saban's concentrated enought of defense. Our offense needs to some new players (i.e., LT, center, RB, WR, TE). Where our defense has two primary needs (i.e. OLB and CB, we already have the young players for the other positions).

either him or Leon Hall.

Adams is just a freak of nature. IMO he'll be picked 3rd overall if the Bucs keep up their pace.

Adams is a top 10 pick at this point, but with so much draft prep ahead a slip to the mid first isn't out of the question for any player but i don't see him falling past the teens at this stage

The only way he slips out of the top 5 is if he has some crazy injury from here until the draft. He's an outstanding pass rusher and an exceptional athlete. He and Woodley, are the 2 purest pass rushers this year. The thing with Woodley, is I believe he's more of a 3-4 OLB, like a Merriman type player. Adams is more in the mold of a Jason Taylor.
