Draft Scout Johnny Adams News
03/17/13 - 2013 Michigan State Pro Day: Johnny Adams, CB (5-11, 181) - Adam had a 33-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot-10 broad jump, and ran the short shuttle in 4.59 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.95 seconds. He stood on his 40-yard dash time from the combine (officially 4.48 seconds). Adams looks like he could be a third cornerback for an NFL team. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/17/13 - 2013 Michigan State Pro Day: Michigan State football's Johnny Adams played half the season with injury...Former Michigan State cornerback Johnny Adams was back in front of the media on Wednesday, perspiring as though he was lined up one-on-one across from Detroit Lions' star Calvin Johnson. Adams, who had not met with local media since his final home game on Nov. 17, can be forgiven if he's a little gun-shy; some NFL Draft reports on him have been less than flattering.
But an NFL scout who spoke with MLive on a condition of anonymity said Adams graded out higher than any of the three Michigan State underclassmen who declared early for the draft. "He's a second-third round grade,'' the scout said. "I was watching more film on him, and I missed on his athletic ability. He hasn't done anything to hurt himself since the end of the season, ran a 4.4 at the (NFL) combine. "Catching the ball, he's not the most natural guy, but he has the movement and he's a competitive guy.''
"I can compete, I have great feet, great hands and that's what I showed,'' Adams said. "Right now I'm waiting on the process and teams getting back with me. "I wouldn't say there's any pressure in the process, I'm just enjoying the process.'' - Mike Griffith, Michigan Live
12/29/12 - Scouting the Michigan State pass defense: The Spartans intercepted the ball 13 times, a dropoff from last season; however, they still ranked third in the Big Ten in pass defense. MSU also struggled getting to the passer, something it did well in 2011 with 45 sacks before falling to just 16 this season. However, both cornerbacks are very good, as Johnny Adams and Darqueze Dennard each had three interceptions. TCU is using its second quarterback this season and he is more of a runner, but the Spartans will need another strong outing from its secondary. - The Sports Xchange
12/04/12 - 2012 ALL-BIG TEN SECOND TEAM (MEDIA): DB Johnny Adams, Michigan State, has been selected Second Team All-Big Ten (Media selection) for the 2012 college football season. The Akron, Ohio, native recorded a career-high two interceptions in the regular-season finale at Minnesota and his 11 career interceptions are 10th most in MSU history. He also ranks among MSU's career leaders in interception return yards (fourth with 230), passed defended (fifth with 35) and pass break-ups (11th with 24).
"Johnny Adams is a three-time All-Big Ten selection and that speaks volumes," Dantonio said. "We constantly put him on an island and he responded to the challenge. He's an active player with big-play capability." - Michigan State football
12/04/12 - 2012 ALL-BIG TEN FIRST TEAM (COACHES): DB Johnny Adams, Michigan State, has been selected First Team All-Big Ten (Coaches selection) for the 2012 college football season. The 5-11, 177-pound Adams, who also garnered first-team All-Big Ten honors last season from the coaches, becomes the first Spartan defensive back to earn first-team All-Big Ten honors in consecutive seasons since John Miller (1987-88). In addition, Adams is just the sixth Spartan defensive back to be named first-team All-Big Ten in multiple seasons (Brad Van Pelt, 1971-72; William Simpson, 1972-73; Thomas Hannon, 1975-76; Phil Parker, 1983-85; Miller, 1987-88).
Adams ranks tied for fifth in the Big Ten with three interceptions and tied for 15th with 10 passes defended. He has collected 35 tackles, including three for losses (9 yards), and ranks tied for second on the team with seven pass break-ups. Adams collected a career-high two tackles for loss (3 yards) and a pass break-up against Notre Dame on Sept. 15 and tallied a season-high six tackles in the win at Indiana on Oct. 6. - Michigan State football
