NFL Report: Mike Adams visits Browns and Steelers

This isn’t a surprise at all, but it is the first report we’ve heard that Ohio State offensive tackle Mike Adams has indeed already visited the Browns-

“Ohio State offensive tackle Mike Adams has visited the Pittsburgh Steelers, St. Louis Rams, Detroit Lions, Buffalo Bills and the Cleveland Browns, according to a league source.”

This comes from Aaron Wilson, who writes for Scout.com, National Football Post and covers the Ravens locally. He can be found on twitter @RavensInsider.

We’ve discussed the Adams to the Browns possibility before. As well as his poor showing at the combine. At the very least, you would imagine Adams would be a possibility for the Browns at #22.

The Steelers have the 24th pick. Scouts Inc. lists Adams as the 27th rated player in the draft.

  • If he’s willing to go work with LeCharles Bentley at his lineman school, I’m on board picking him. ūüôā

    pick him up at 37

    just a curiosity:¬† isn’t Bentley’s OL school only for pre-draft (pre-combine)?¬† once the draft is done, veterans can start working with their teams as can rookies, so not sure how he would be able to have his camps.

    Meh.¬† I’ll pass on Mike Adams.¬† He simply does not possess the type of work habits, strength and technique that you would typically want out of a right tackle; a guy who should be more of a road-grater, mauler type who’s strength is run-blocking.¬† Adams is more of a left tackle where you typically find guys who are stronger in pass protection and are able to protect the quarterback’s blindside when he drops back to pass.¬† I think the Browns would do well to look more at the likes of Ole Miss OT Bobbie Massie or Cal OT Mitchell Schwartz.¬† Both of those guys are way more physical than Adams and can be Day One starters at the right tackle position for a team with a right handed rushing attack.¬† What’s even better is that both those guys can be found in either the 2nd or 3rd rounds, unlike Adams who would most likely cost us #22 overall.¬†

  • ¬†No, I believe Jason Pinkston has been there for the majority of this years offseason

  • jewpants

    exactly. ¬†once you get past the 5+ 1/2(blackmon) ‘elite’ prospects, the draft is a big picture/long term game

  • mgbode

    poorly worded by me.¬† I meant to say doesn’t it end sometime before the draft (for rookies and veterans) since the players can work out with the team afterwards.

  • ¬†then yes! i am pretty sure its an offseason only thing every year, so he wont be able to go until next year

  • TSR3000

    So many better OL prospects.  Get a good one at 22.
