As draft season heats up, players are beginning to get put under the microscope. For NFL scouts and executives, one of the positions you have to look at the closest is quarterback.
In today’s game, a good quarterback can make or break a NFL franchise. And if you believe you have a potential long-term answer under center, you have to pull the trigger on him in the draft so the evaluation important.
One quarterback who is benefitting from the extra looks is former Eastern Washington and Oregon signal-caller Vernon Adams.
While Adams didn’t have as impressive of a final year at the collegiate level as he would have liked, one NFC scout is impressed with what he has seen and believes that Adams has “got something to him.”
“I wouldn’t draft him but I watched him at Eastern Washington and Oregon, and he’s got something to him as a competitor,” he said, via NFL.com’s Lance Zerlein. “I would have no problem bringing him into camp and seeing what happens.”
Adams is undersized, but he did show the ability to quickly adapt to an increased level of competition and he picked up on a new offense at an impressive rate.
Whether he gets drafted remains to be seen, but it looks like Adams has some potential suitors as an undrafted free agent thanks to his strong competitive will and nature.
