Adams will join a defense heavy draft and undrafted free agents haul by the Steelers. He’s one of three players in this group that play along the defensive line that will hope to find a permanent spot on their roster.
We have agreed to terms with nine rookie free agents.— Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) April 30, 2017

In his career, Adams compiled 80 total tackles, 4 sacks, and an interception. 25 of those tackles and 2.5 of those sacks came during his senior season. Adams has the size to compete in the NFL and now he has a chance to do so.
