Another rough night for the rookie. Run blocking wasn't to bad but pass blocking, not so much. I get that Adams missed about a weeks worth of practices with that knee injury so that put him behind some in his progress, but man it was painful to watch at times. Besides Kelvin Beachum he was clearly the worst offensive lineman in both preseason games so far. I would probably say that Beachum was worse but it wasn't by all that much.
You can see when the ball is snapped his reaction time is just not there, by the time he gets his head around or his feet going the pass rusher already has a step on him. I get that some of it is mental, learning how to read the defender and where he's looking to go based on body position, etc. but the reaction time is questionable at best right now. Buffalo has an up and coming defense so it doesn't get any easier next week.
If Adams doesn't improve his game against Buffalo next Saturday, I gotta think Tomlin is going to go with Starks to start the year.
