    Before the draft, lots of folks rated him with a first round grade - from what I read several teams had a first round grade on the guy. He dropped for off field issues.

    A Marvel Smith type tackle would be great. He was an above-average left tackle for the better part of a decade. I'll gladly take that. I don't think that anybody sees Adams as a Jack Long/Joe Thomas/William Roaf type elite LT, but he can be a well-above average LT with perhaps a pro bowl or two sprinkled in.
