The Book On Montravius Adams, Packers’ Third-Round Pick

You knew the Green Bay Packers were going to add to the defensive line at some point in the draft — they always do — and they did so with their third-round selection. The player is Auburn’s Montravius Adams.

Adams is a large man at 6’4″, 304. At that height, he could even add more weight.

During his senior season, Adams totaled 43 tackles, including eight for loss and four sacks. He also added an interception, forced fumble and two recoveries, while earning second-team All-SEC.

The Packers do need depth on the defensive line. We still don’t know what they have in last year’s first-round pick Kenny Clark or fourth-round pick Dean Lowry. Plus, Letroy Guion is suspended again, for four games this time.

Adams may get into the rotation right out of the gate out of necessity.

From NFL.com: Adams disappointed the scouting community with a pedestrian junior season that lacked passion and production. This season, he played with greater consistency of effort and found his way into the backfield far more often. Can be disruptive off the snap but is not the type of player to recover quickly if beaten early in the rep. He is a rotational defensive tackle for gap-attack defenses, but is unlikely to offer much as a pass rusher.

    I have a hard time believing these were the Packers intended picks but they rarely know how to move up or down appropriately anyways. At least they’ve all been defensive players though, huh!?

    we’ll see what happens. I think SEC interior defensive linemen a pretty solid even if they aren’t exceptional. usually better on average than pac 12 interior defensive linemen. we’ll see how he pans out.

    Hate this pick. Screams Cledtus Hunt 2.0. We fucking suck at drafting D lineman if you look back since 2000 so I have a right to be pissed. I hate this draft so far. Still could have had Watt in the first and either Awuzie or the NC State kid in the second. And we are fucked at OLB and ILB again by the looks at it. I give it a C+ so far.

      Cleditus Hunt……
      I had forgotten about him…..

      Len Pasquarelli wrote in 2005..
      “The former Kentucky State standout, a third-round choice in the 1999 draft who showed flashes of dominance, suffered from a lack of consistency and a questionable work ethic. Hunt was often absent from the team’s offseason program and this spring forfeited a $250,000 workout bonus because he failed to meet attendance levels in his contract”

      Can’t afford another Cleditus

    Well, guards and tackles will be 20lbs heavier than him. I hope he doesn’t get blown off the ball on running downs.
    A bit light for a 3-4 DE, and too tall for an interior rusher, way too tall and light for a 3-4 NT. If he gets some good 15 lb he would be good for a 3-4 base def DE. Some people play stronger than their weight suggests, like Aaron Donald, for instance, so, who knows, let’s hope we get some good snaps from this kid.

    Bye Bye Letroy…we never wanted a former Viking anyway, you’re an underachieving loudmouth idiot. Cut that jackass. He’ll just get suspended again anyway. Next time he’ll be smoking weed while doing PEDs.
