Mike Adams in the Supplemental Draft ??

Mike Adams, the LT for the Ohio State Buckeyes is rumored to be considering entering the Supplemental Draft

Mike Adams & the other four players who were ruled ineligible by the NCAA for the first five games of the 2011 collegiate football season are possibly considering entering the supplemental draft this summer (it is part of the old CBA & therefore is not affected by the lockout tho it has not been scheduled yet). With Jim Tressels resignation over the weekend & OSU's football program in shambles it is very possible that some or all of the five players who are suspended by the NCAA might enter the Supplemental Draft.

Mike Adams is an elite talent at OT, he is rated #2 on NFLDraftscout, the 5th best OT by Mel Kiper & #46 on Dan Kadar (MTD) Big Board. If he stays, he is projected to go in the late 1st, early 2nd range by most scouts. He was All Big Ten 1st Team in 2010 (coach's) & All Big Ten 1st Team (media). He is a very good fit in a ZBS & extremely athletic at 6-8, 305 lb.s. Adams is still very raw & would need time & work to become a starter. He has a fair amount of baggage as well, he was not only involved in the tattoo incident but also was arrested for drug paraphernalia (a pipe, & the charges were later dropped because Jim Tressel called them up & told them too of a lack of evidence) & he was suspended for two games in 09 for undisclosed reasons. He has also had some injury issues, he needed shoulder surgery before his freshman season, he played four games that year & then had to deal with a foot injury. He also missed three games last year with a shoulder injury which required surgery at the end of the season.

The supplemental draft works like a silent auction with a draft order much like the regular drafts. If he goes in the supplemental draft, I would like for us to try & get him for a third but no higher. He has the talent & the tools to be a very good OT in the NFL but he also has injury & maturity issues that could severely affect him as a player.

The other players from OSU that might also be considering the supplemental draft are

Terrell Pryor - QB (no comment) if interested, post bio below

Dan Herron - RB - A very good RB who fits Shannys system very well. I think we have enough young, raw RBs on our roster already

DeVier Posey -WR - At 6-2, 210 lb.s 4.5 40 (est.) he would be another very good young WR prospect. He projected to go in the 2nd & is the #6 WR for 2012 by NFLDraftscout  maybe Oaklands 4th??

Soloman Thomas - DE/OLB - A backup DE for OSU who is very talented & could be a steal in these circumstances. A 6th or a 7th ??
