Adams Could Make a Run at Defensive ROY

Bucky Brooks Predicts No. 6 Overall Pick Will Produce, Have Instant Impact


NFL Network's Bucky Brooks predicts Jets' first-round pick Jamal Adams will make the All-Rookie team at the close of the 2017 season.

"The Jets' new defensive leader will deliver plenty of splash plays as a roving center fielder or rugged box defender for Gang Green," Brooks wrote. "Adams' underrated versatility could help him make a run at the Defensive Rookie of the Year award as a stat-stuffer with big-time production and impact."

The LSU product started three years for the Tigers, racking up 209 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, five interceptions and 14 pass defenses. The 6'0", 214-pounder is lauded for his intangibles as he's referred to as one of the best leaders in program history.

"He's an outstanding player, obviously," head coach Todd Bowles said. "He's smart, fast, tough and physical. He's an alpha. He's good and off the field he checked all the boxes for us. We think we got a real good football player. We had him rated high."
