He played solid and when he almost had a pick for 6 they sowed a close up of him.That dude is built like a SS.

It is rather humorous to me that so much time is being spent today on Nate Davis, who did not play very well, and ignoring Adams who did a VERY good job. He did everything a CB needs to do. It is a long way until the regular season but it is nice to know that the team was able to get such a good apparent value so deep in the draft. It appears as though Balke has another success to put on his resume.
The guy is awesome. He's way better than a 7th rounder. And he needs to somehow find a way onto the 53 man roster.

Baalke could have its own thread. He did a whale of a good job. I hope we can sew him up and keep him on our team for a while.

Somebody got out to Rock Hill (where my wife was born) and seriously scouted this kid. That is really encouraging.

That one play on the North endzone, he showed great mobility and technique and the guy is a willing tackler!!! I like!!!

I agree. This guy has really impressed me.
If he plays one more game like he did last night, he's a lock to make the team. We desperately need CB depth. I bet this was very pleasing to Singletary & Co.

seriously tho, this draft was awesome. adams had 4 passes broken up and a near pick 6. dude is a stud.
i love his swagger. he better make the team and maybe even beat out paymah on the depth chart

It would really help if this kid can show some return ability. Heard one of the Matts say he was back catching punts yesterday.
We might have something here. He had a good game the other night. I forgot he was a rookie.
This kid needs to make the squad ------ another pick in practice. Will James doesn't make the squad.

Maiocco: Adams Making Case for Roster Spot

Aug 25, 2010

SANTA CLARA -- The 49ers' personnel department peruses film from every exhibition game across the NFL. Reports are written on each of the first-year players selected from the fourth round and beyond.

This is the time of year in which teams try to familiarize themselves with players who might shake free as the final cuts approach on Sept. 4.

In film rooms across the NFL, you can be sure a common question being asked after the 49ers' 15-10 victory Sunday against the Vikings was, "Who is that No. 35?"


Phillip Adams was the 49ers' seventh-round pick, chosen No. 224 overall. The cornerback from South Carolina State is the least-known of the 49ers' eight draft picks.

He was limited for more than a week of training camp with a hamstring strain, and he did not suit up for the 49ers' exhibition opener against the Indianapolis Colts. Adams made his debut against the Vikings, and responded with three passes broken up in the second half.

Adams knows the entire league is watching. But he is not interested in auditioning for other jobs around the league. He is intent on sticking with the 49ers.

"My mindset is to be here," Adams said. "This is where my heart is at right now. Whatever happens, I'm going in every day with the intention of helping this team out. When all the smoke clears, I want to be with this team. I like what's going on here."

Adams is competing for a spot on the 49ers' 53-man roster. After his strong showing against the Vikings, he looks to be in pretty good shape. He could earn a roster spot as the fifth cornerback behind Nate Clements, Shawntae Spencer, Tarell Brown and Karl Paymah.

Adams had his good showing against players on the Vikings' third team. Coach Mike Singletary said it's part of the plan to bring Adams along slowly.

It was nice to see him have a good game the other night," Singletary said. "But I think it's just important for us to continue to evaluate him and not put him in a situation where it's a little too big for him."

Adams is trying to increase his value by getting into the mix as a punt returner. As a junior, Adams returned just 11 punts for 208 yards and two touchdowns. He returned only five punts as a senior.

"I've been catching them on and off," Adams said. "I think I'm going to experiment a little bit. But I definitely want to do it. I love that challenge."
