LSU safety Jamal Adams will be at the draft tonight, but he doesn’t expect to be in the green room for long.

Adams said on PFT Live that he expects to go somewhere between the second and fifth overall picks, although he hasn’t been given any assurances.

“I really don’t know what to expect. I’m just going to be outstanding wherever I land. I’m just going to wait on that call,” Adams said.

Adams said he visited two teams with Top 5 picks, the 49ers and Jaguars, as well as the Jets, Panthers and Bengals among teams not in the Top 5 that could hope he falls to them. Expect to hear his name called within the first hour of the draft tonight.

  1. I’ve been forced home due to surgery this week and watched some ESPN during the day. Hoping to catch recaps of NBA playoff games, instead I seen this guy on the show 3 different times with all the talking heads. He does not seem to be very bright and his answers were poorly rehearsed and often repeated.

  2. joetoronto says:
    Do any of these guys have any humility?

    Great question. If not, they will learn humility when they attempt to play at the NFL level. Plenty of humble pie to go around.

  3. “Do any of these guys have any humility?”

    Yeah good one. Next year, the best player in the draft at his position should say something like “Whoever picks me, I’ll try as hard as I can, but I still may suck.” Horrible comment by you.

  4. There is only one thing I am 100% positive about in this draft. There will be more black players drafted than white players.
    I would love to see a study done as to why blacks are so superior to whites in sports involving speed. I am serious about this. I love to watch track and field events and I marvel at how great black runners are. They dominate track events whether it’s men or women.
    I watched a mens 100 meter race recently and there was not one white guy even in the event. It seems the whites can only compete in the long distance events.
    Does anyone have an opinion of why blacks dominate sports which involve speed as they do?
    Jimmy The Greek offered his opinion on that many years ago and it got him fired. I am being very serious when I ask the question. If there are any doctors or anthropologists reading this, please give me your opinion. It fascinates me how this is so true, and I would love to see an extensive study to research this and find the answers.

  5. “Whoever picks me, I’ll try as hard as I can, but I still may suck.”
    Whoever picks me, I’ll try as hard as I can, and I’ll do my best. (Or I’ll give it my all.)

    If you have to go to the extreme (I still may suck) to make a point then you really never had a point to begin with.

  6. Heard on Chicago radio today that Adams has the personality that can change the culture in your locker room. That I think in part explains why he is so high on teams’ draft boards.

    It also makes me think SF would love to have him on board. And Chicago as well.

  7. I was a 12th round selection in MLB. Your agent always tells you to be yourself and be confident. If you don’t have 100% confidence in your ability, you ain’t a prospect. Pro teams have a massive file on players that allow them to evaluate demeanor. If you give 110% effort on the field and aren’t a screw-up off the field, you can make all sorts of confident remarks. Teams know who you are already. Jamal Adams is a phenom. This comment doesn’t hurt him one bit and he doesn’t give a crap what PFT message boards think.
