As a senior, he recorded 127 tackles, 34 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks, leading the Bobcats to an 11–3 record and an appearance in the Class A state title game. In addition to being named All-State for the second straight year, he was selected as a participant in the 2013 Under Armour All-America Game.[1][2]

He was rated by Rivals.com as a five-star recruit and the 3rd best defensive lineman in his class.[3] Early on, he leaned towards signing with Clemson (the first school to make an offer), but on National Signing Day in February 2013, Adams committed to play college football for Auburn University.[4][5]

College career

Adams played in 13 games as a true freshman at Auburn in 2013 and had 20 tackles. In his first career snap, in the season opener against Washington State on August 31, he sacked Cougars quarterback Connor Halliday.[6] At the conclusion of the season, he was named a Freshman All-American by 247 Sports.[7] As a sophomore in 2014, he played in 13 games and made 10 starts, recording 43 tackles, 8 tackles for loss, 3 sacks and an interception. As a junior in 2015, Adams became a permanent starter at nose tackle, and had 44 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. As a senior, he recorded 44 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 1 interception, 2 blocked kicks, and a touchdown as team captain. SECCounty.com called him "the most consistent force for [an] Auburn defense that went from punchline to power in 2016."[8] He was subsequently named first team All-SEC,[9] and a second-team All-American (by AP, CBS Sports and AFCA) at the conclusion of the season.[10][11][12][13]

Adams participated in the 2016 Senior Bowl, recording six tackles, one tackle for loss and a fumble recovery.[14][15]

Professional career

Adams was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the third round, 93rd overall, in the 2017 NFL Draft.[16] He signed his rookie contract on July 5, 2017.[17] He under-went foot surgery in August after suffering a stress fracture on the second day of training camp, and missed the entire preseason as a result.[18][19] On November 11, 2018, Adams recorded his first career sack on Miami Dolphins quarterback Brock Osweiler in a 31–12 victory.

Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers are a professional American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league's National Football Conference (NFC) North division. It is the third-oldest franchise in the NFL, dating back to 1919, and is the only non-profit, community-owned major league professional sports team based in the United States. Home games have been played at Lambeau Field since 1957.

The Packers are the last of the "small town teams" which were common in the NFL during the league's early days of the 1920s and '30s. Founded in 1919 by Earl "Curly" Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun, the franchise traces its lineage to other semi-professional teams in Green Bay dating back to 1896. Between 1919 and 1920, the Packers competed against other semi-pro clubs from around Wisconsin and the Midwest, before joining the American Professional Football Association (APFA), the forerunner of today's NFL, in 1921. Although Green Bay is by far the smallest major league professional sports market in North America, Forbes ranked the Packers as the world's 26th most valuable sports franchise in 2016, with a value of $2.35 billion.The Packers have won 13 league championships, the most in NFL history, with nine pre–Super Bowl NFL titles and four Super Bowl victories. The Packers won the first two Super Bowls in 1967 and 1968 and were the only NFL team to defeat the American Football League (AFL) prior to the AFL–NFL merger. The Vince Lombardi Trophy is named after the Packers' coach of the same name, who guided them to their first two Super Bowls. Their two subsequent Super Bowl wins came in 1996 and 2010.The Packers are long-standing adversaries of the Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, and Detroit Lions, who today comprise the NFL's NFC North division, and were formerly members of the NFC Central Division. They have played over 100 games against each of those teams through history, and have a winning overall record against all of them, a distinction only shared with the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys. The Bears–Packers rivalry is one of the oldest in NFL history, dating back to 1921.
