Ohio State’s Mike Adams is likely going to enjoy a surge when it comes to his stock for the 2012 NFL Draft. His enormous frame at 6-8, 320 lbs. is very projectable at the NFL level and he’s got the talent to go with it. He’s still a rough project at times, but Adams simply has things you cannot teach. Given that the Chiefs offensive line has been an issue on the right side at tackle the last two seasons, it’s not surprising that the latest mock draft from SB Nation has the Chiefs going with Adams at No. 11.
Ryan Van Bibber writes, “At some point this team is going to have to find a quarterback. Maybe next year. For now, they need to replace Barry Richardson at right tackle. Adams has the most upside of any tackle beyond Kalil or Reiff, and he’s naturally suited to slide right in on the right side for the Chiefs.”
Wes Bunting of the National Football Post also loves his game and says, “He’s a talented kid with a big frame, long arms and natural movement skills. He can bend and if he can put it all together and continue to improve his footwork he could certainly mature into a starting caliber left tackle in the NFL.”
