The Chargers could use a left tackle after trading Russell Okung.
Adams blocked well overall for Washington in 2019 and was a good blind-side protector for Jacob Eason. Team sources say Adams impressed them during fall camp. Adams missed the majority of 2018 with a back injury but returned to the field late in the year. In the first half of the 2017 season, Adams went out for the year after a torn ACL. Sources stated they didn't think that the torn ACL would have kept Adams from being a first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, similar to Cedric Ogbuehi in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Adams was one of the top left tackles in the Pac-12 during 2016. The Huskies fielded a potent passing offense, and Adams did a nice job of keeping Jake Browning protected. Sources previously raved about Adams being one of the top talents for the 2018 NFL Draft class with franchise left tackle potential. They were impressed with his 2016 tape, including how well he did in one-on-ones with Alabama's edge rushers in the Huskies' playoff game.
Adams is a smooth mover with length, making it tough to get by him. He plays with nice body lean and leverage that he uses to help sustain blocks. Adams has quick feet and is athletic on the edge. The 6-foot-8, 318-pounder possesses length and size to go along with quality quickness and athleticism. If he can stay healthy, he could be a franchise left tackle.
