The arrival of Adams should fill a big void, giving Rodgers another inviting receiver to stretch the field and complement Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. All the jump-happy Adams did the last two seasons in Fresno State's pro-style attack triggered by Derek Carr, taken 17 picks earlier in round two by the Oakland Raiders, was catch and run with the football in great numbers. - The Sports Xchange

Number of Players NFL Draft Scout is currently tracking: (Player Tracking) - Players are rated and updated throughout the season. Those with a "99" or "999" are currently listed but UNRATED.

NFLDraftScout.com uses the best verifiable 40-yard time for each player. There is no single, official 40-yard time for any player, even those who run at the Indianapolis Combine. Those players who participate in the 40 yards at the Combine actually run twice and on each run they are timed by two hand-held stopwatches and one electronic timer (that is actually initiated by hand on the player's first movement). Combine data includes all six of those times for each player, but no single official time. Team scouts and coaches have various approaches for getting the 40 time they use from those six timings. Some use averages. Some throw out slowest and fastest and then average the rest. In deference to each player, NFLDraftScout.com attempts to use the best verifiable time that seems appropriate for each player. That is the 40 time we post.
