Senior Bowl 2012: Ohio State's Mike Adams Among Those Helping Stock

Ohio State offensive tackle Mike Adams is already considered one of the top prospects heading into the 2012 NFL Draft. But that doesn't mean he can't help his stock, something he apparently has done during practices for the 2012 Senior Bowl, according to Wes Bunting of the National Football Post.

Ohio State OT Mike Adams has a real presence about him. He’s a big kid with a long set of arms and when he shoots his hands inside on contact, he has the ability to control blocks and slide his feet through the play. However, the only time he gets himself into trouble is when he doesn’t extend his arms and looks to catch opposing lineman at the point. Nevertheless, the talent is there for this guy to be a top-20 pick.

Even before the Senior Bowl practices started, Adams was pegged to go No. 13 in SB Nation's latest NFL Mock Draft. Mocking the Draft wasn't so sure, though, as they have him ranked as the 34th best prospect. Although, they do acknowledge that the 6-foot-8, 300-pounder could move up the charts quickly: "If Adams adds some weight prior to the combine he will be a late 1st round selection."
