The Fresno State Bulldogs could have both members of their elite QB-WR combo selected in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, as Derek Carr is a lock to get picked in the first (he will most likely be a top ten selection) and Davante Adams has a shot at getting pulled off the board in the 20s. According to draft insider Tony Pauline, Adams has signed with an agent, meaning that he will officially declare for the draft this year.
Adams is definitely one of the top wide receivers in the draft class, and it would be a downright shock for him to fall outside of the first two rounds. Carr’s go-to-guy, Adams racked up a whopping 131 receptions for 1,718 yards and 24 touchdowns this season, and the numbers back up his immense upside. He has speed to burn and an uncanny penchant for coming up with contested passes. A lot of times, Carr will simply lob the ball, because he knows that Adams can go up and get it.
I think Adams makes plenty of sense for a team like the Baltimore Ravens in the late first round, but the pre-draft process and Combine will likely dictate where he goes. Honestly, I could see him going anywhere in the range of 20-60, even if the draft advisory board stated that he is just a third-round pick.
Adams has always seemed to want to declare for the NFL Draft, so the fact that he has officially made the decision comes as no surprise.
