Prospect Profile: Davante Adams

Posted Apr 16, 2014

Learn more about Fresno State wide receiver Davante Adams.


In order to familiarize fans with some of the top names in the 2014 NFL Draft, Chargers.com will be highlighting a different prospect each weekday leading up to the first day of the draft on May 8th.

We continue the series with a scouting report of Fresno State’s Davante Adams.

Name: Davante Adams
School: Fresno State
Height: 6-1
Weight: 212 pounds
Position: Wide Receiver

Teams that value productivity in college as a strong barometer of effectiveness in the NFL are sure to be enamored with wide receiver Davante Adams.  Even though he played just two seasons at Fresno State, his productivity was through the roof.

After red shirting the 2011 season, Adams dominated when he burst onto the scene in 2012.  He was the Mountain West Conference Freshman of the Year, totaling 102 catches for 1,312 yards and 14 touchdowns.  In the process he set conference freshman records for receptions and yards.  Adams followed his sensational first year with a scintillating sophomore campaign, leading the entire nation in receptions (131) and receiving touchdowns (24), while setting the single-season school record for receiving yards with 1,718. Other marks he set include the Mountain West record for single season receptions and career touchdown catches (38), as well as the Fresno State record for career receptions (233).

At 6-1, 212-pounds, Adams possesses an ideal frame for a wideout.  Most importantly, he is incredibly sure-handed rarely dropping the ball.  Although he isn’t a sprinter, Adams has good speed which he uses to great effect with big play ability.   He has also shown a willingness to mix it up, outmuscling defenders both with the ball and while running routes.

Adams’ detractors admit he had incredible productivity, but caution it came against questionable competition in the Mountain West.  Still, with comparisons to James Jones and Michael Crabtree, Adams figures to be one of a number of wide receiver prospects to hear his name early during the Draft this May.
