NO... Adams will play at a high level for his team, the letter was no different than Harbaugh texting with possible draft picks!
You can bring in players before the draft for visits, that's how you learn about these guys in more than just 15 minutes at the combine or on film. Whether they are technically on your draft board or not doesn't matter. The league doesn't care who's on your board at any point.
I gotta give the guy credit, he called the Steelers and they agreed to meet with him, that showed that he realizes the importance of his mistake and what this opportunity means.
Being he's a local guy here in Ohio I know a guy his kids went to school with Adams and they claim he's a total pothead toolbag, with that said that was high school, let's hope he has grown up and that crap is behind him..
Risk/Reward kind of pick. I love the pick and think it's well worth the risk. He has all the tools to succeed and will be surrounded by guys with work ethic and drive to support him. Hopefully he leaves his pot smoking friends behind him and turns the page. He loves the Steelers and I have a feeling he will not want to let them down for giving him a chance.
Also, I dont see any rule breaking as teams early in the first round always used to discuss contracts with the players.

He was still just a college student. Hopefully he smarts up now.
College kids & Pro Athletes smoke pot. Not a big deal. However, He is on a very short leash and you can bet his contract will protect The Steelers. I knew they wouldn't take him in the first but value was too great to bypass in the second. I'll admit I thought they'd take Bobby Massie because he also visited But LT dont grow on tree's. Bye Bye Jonathan Scott welcome back Max Starks this summer. What a interesting camp battle those guys will have.
BLAZIN HAZEL!!!! How's it going man? Haven't seen on facebook in forever
