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.
