Packers second-round WR Davante Adams reportedly battled drop issues during OTAs and minicamp.
We wouldn't make too much of this as Adams showed excellent ball skills and strong hands while catching 131 passes from Derek Carr at Fresno State last season. We're still expecting him to push Jarrett Boykin very hard for the No. 3 wideout job at training camp. Adams has a significant natural talent edge. Jun 30 - 10:30 AM

Packers signed No. 53 overall pick WR Davante Adams to a four-year contract.

Adams (6-foot-1, 212 pounds) was Derek Carr's go-to receiver at Fresno State. Although he lacks elite long speed (4.54), he's a plus athlete (39.5-inch vertical) with high-pointing ability in traffic. He's drawn Michael Crabtree and Keenan Allen comparisons as a possession target with top-notch ball skills who excels after the catch. Adams is unlikely to make much of a re-draft impact as a rookie, but with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb both in contract years, Adams needs to be 100 percent owned in Dynasty formats.

Packers selected Fresno State WR Davante Adams with the No. 53 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Adams (6-foot 7/8, 212) left school after his redshirt sophomore year, when he led the nation in receptions (131) and touchdown catches (24) as Derek Carr's go-to receiver. Despite lacking elite long speed (4.54), Adams is a plus athlete (39.5-inch vertical) with high-pointing ability in traffic. He's drawn Michael Crabtree and Keenan Allen comparisons as a possession target with top-notch ball skills who excels after the catch. Football analytics suggest younger prospects offer higher NFL ceilings, and Adams won't turn 22 until late December. Adams' landing spot doesn't appear perfect on paper due to Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Jarrett Boykin's presence, but he's good enough to ascend. Adams should be on Dynasty league radars in the second and third rounds of rookie drafts.

Fresno State WR Davante Adams clocked unofficial forty times of 4.50 and 4.54 at the Scouting Combine.

His official forty time was later announced at 4.56. Adams was dominant statistically with Derek Carr threading him passes in college, but he's a poor man's Anquan Boldin with middling straight-line speed. Some NFL teams will push him down draft boards based on these forty times at under 6-foot-1 and 212 pounds. He's a day-two draft prospect.

Fresno State WR Davante Adams measured 6-foot 7/8 and 212 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine weigh-in.

He's over an inch shorter and four pounds lighter than his college listing. Derek Carr's go-to guy, Adams led the nation in receptions (131) and touchdown catches (24) as a redshirt sophomore this past season, and finished second nationally in receiving yards per game (132.2). He's a day-two prospect.

DraftInsider.net's Tony Pauline reports Fresno State redshirt sophomore WR Davante Adams will declare for the NFL draft.

Adams has signed with an agent, ending his amateurism. A 6-foot-2, 216-pound outside receiver, Adams thrived catching passes from likely first-round QB Derek Carr this season, making an eye-popping 131 grabs for 1,718 yards and 24 touchdowns. Adams excels at adding yards after the catch, and high-pointing passes. Rotoworld's Josh Norris believes Adams has a legit chance to go in the first two rounds.
