Former Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams has not had a single private workout nor one team visit during his entire NFL Draft process, according to Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle.

This is something of a surprise, as Adams’ game tape rebounded after an ugly start in 2015. The Eastern Washington transfer dealt with a broken finger and missed time because of it, but still ended his season with 2,643 pass yards and 26 touchdowns compared to just six interceptions. Adams also completed nearly 65 percent of his passes and showed a keen ability to think quickly in the pocket and improvise when necessary.
But Adams also isn’t of ideal size for a quarterback, measuring just 5-foot-11 at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis earlier this season and not looking overly impressive. His competitive spirit is there, but that won’t necessarily translate to on-field results and that is why teams have probably shied away.
