Washington football training camp profiles: Offensive line
By Ian Cummings
Experience: 2nd season
Draft Status: Undrafted, 2019
2019 Stats: N/A
2020 Outlook: Paul Adams is a deep sleeper on Washington’s offensive line. At the moment, he’s dead last in standing, as the team’s final offensive tackle. But a fresh chance to prove himself with a new coaching staff could be what Adams needs to break onto the NFL scene.
Adams, standing at 6-foot-6, 315, went undrafted out of Missouri in 2019, despite being mentored by Buffalo Bills starter Mitch Morse. Adams didn’t see any action for the Washington football team in his first season, but he’s still around past the initial wave of cuts. How well that sentence ages will be of great interest.
Expected Role: If Adams is retained by Rivera’s staff, he’ll likely take on the role of backup. He was a tackle at Missouri, but like Parris, his traits could bode him well at a guard position. Of course, versatility isn’t a projection, but a proven ability to play multiple spots, and at the NFL level, Adams hasn’t been able to prove that just yet.
Status: As mentioned above, Adams remains on the roster for now, but more cuts will need to be made as the team trims its preseason roster to 80 players. In that process, unfortunately, Adams is the most expendable player at his position.
