31 March 2017 DRAFT Eagles News
According to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, the Philadelphia Eagles will have LSU S Jamal Adams in for a visit.
While most have the LSU prospect as a lock in the top-10 of the upcoming draft, I have seen that some evalutors believe he could go lower than expected.

What is your optimistic outlook of Jamal Adams' impact in the NFL? In terms of a player currently in the NFL.

The 6-foot, 214-pound Adams was a two-year starter for the Tigers and has become a do-it-all type of safety for LSU the last two seasons. Whether it’s asked to play near the line of scrimmage or make plays in space, Adams has been very productive for the Tigers, posting 209 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 21 passes defended, with 5 interceptions on his career resume.
What you like about Adams, he’s shown a level of consistency since his freshman year, and has only progressed as years have passed. Adams also brings NFL bloodlines to the table, as his father, George, was an NFL running back with the 1986 Super Bowl winning New York Giants. The potential top-5 prospect is also a leader in the locker room for the Tigers and has been the heart and soul of Tiger’s defense, as he was named a captain as a junior.
If the talented LSU safety is on the board, he’s another potential playmaker that would be an instant upgrade to the roster. If the Birds were looking for someone to play the nickel spot, Adams could start from day 1. He has the kind of ability to cover tight ends and can guard receivers in the slot.
A feel good Eagles fan moment: One of Adam’s biggest highlights at the NFL Combine was meeting Brian Dawkins.
“For instance, (Saturday) I talked to a legend, Brian Dawkins . . . I’ve admired everything about him, and that was the highlight of my week. Just knowing that he already knew about me, saying how passionate I was and how I play the game the right way. That was huge, to hear that from a legend like him,” Adams said.
