Davante Adams WR Fresno ST

I have not heard much talk about him. He is one of the most productive WR's in the game right now. I think he has a lot of upside. He has scored 18 TD's dating back to last season. I do not think he will have any problem adjusting to the pro level. He is one of my favorite WR's in college football right now.

We could use one of those hobbits with legit speed and/or quickness lol. Right now we only potentially have Quinton Patton. But even still, no true burners. I think we go to the well more than once and get a big bodied guy and a true deep threat. I love Vernon Davis, but at the same time I am not comfortable that the fastest player on our offense is a tight end. It's like having the best ball handler on your basketball team being the center.

I do not think Davante Edwards is eligible for the 2014 draft.

I am not positive about this but he is listed as a sophomore.

He is a Sophmore... I just wanted to make a thread on him to keep track on him.

I am bit confused because some sites have him listed as a red shirt sophomore and that would mean that he has been out of high school for three years.

He only needs to three years out of high school to be draft eligible.

Other sites have him draft eligible in 2016, which does not make that much sense to me.

Pretty sure he is eldgible in 2015. He was redshirted as a Freshman. I could be wrong.
Gonna watch this kid in person on sat. The dogs are coming up to play my alma mater. Vandals are gonna get spanked, but hopefully its somewhat entertaining. Im originally from Fresno.

Adams 12 catches 162 yards with 3 TD's in the first half
He's got really questionable hands, I'm interested to see how he develops but he has a tendency to lose focus and let passes go, he needs to improve strongly in that area.

He's a redshirt sophomore which means he is eligible after this season. Fresno passes the ball a lot which inflates his stats but I was impressed by him last year. I'll be able to watch him in Laramie on November 9th. Hopefully Wyoming shows up on offense because that game could be a pretty exciting shootout.
Well he was dominate tonight. He is big bodied, by far the largest looking WR on the field. Really looked like a man among boys. He was in 1 on 1 matchups most of the game and really dominated. I dunno phoenix, tonight he had some really nice grabs, including a really nice one handed grab for a TD. he made it look easy.

The one thing i will say is that he has a tendancy to nit fight for balls that are misthrown. Gave up an INT, that ultimately was on Carr, but Adams had a chance to play defense and really seemed to want nothing to do with it.

Not the fastest off the LOS, but he is a pretty proficient route runner. Didnt see great breakaway speed, but he is good with the Jump ball, and had really strong hands from what i saw.

This is the first i had a chance to see him in person.

Really he was simply dominate in that first quarter mostly, but the second quarter as well. Second half Fresno let up bigtime. Probaby could have been 100+ point game had they not let off the throttle.

I was actually just getting ready to rep Chad Chalich, but his performance was not good tonight, i was hoping for more considering Fresno's Defense is not good. expect better from the RS freshman going forward.
Interested to see him against UNLV this weekend. He is indeed 2014 draft eligible. dont know if he will declare or not.

He is definately on my radar.
Had to turn game off at halftime, but he had his second straight game with 3 TD's in the first half. 4 rec, 146 yards, 3 TD's on the half. Ill update later when i see final numbers. This kid is a baller.
