Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State

Adams' big-time production with the Bulldogs was both a product of his own talent and his offense's high-volume passing attack. In just two seasons, Adams caught 233 passes for 3,030 yards and 38 TDs.

Just three years removed from high school. Great ball skills. Consistent and reliable hands. Catches everything near him, including surprisingly difficult catches. Elite hand-eye coordination. Average straight line speed. Good leaper, explosive. Needs to add more strength. Can be thrown off his route when covered in press-man. Will make for a valuable No. 2 possession receiver. Highpoints the ball really well. Just seems to have a knack for coming down with the football despite some certain athletic limitations.

A bit slow changing gears. Slow in and out of his breaks. Needs to add more suddenness and a little more savvy to his route-running. Still has plenty of room on his frame to add more functional strength and bulk. Just enough speed to be a deep threat. Willing to work the middle. More effort needed when run-blocking.

Adams projects as a second round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: At just 21 years old, Adams will have an extra year to provide dynasty owners. He has the size and long-term potential to blossom into a No. 1 WR. Due to concerns about his raw route-running in the short-term, it is hard to imagine a scenario where he makes an immediate impact since he is unlikely to crack the top of any depth chart.
