Adams was dominant when healthy with very limited experience. Especially in the run game. he had issues with passprotection, but that was to be expected; it takes time to develop that. i think he'll be a stud! Might want to have him play RT for another year though.
However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!
The only way Adams gets better is by playing.....You don't draft Adams in the 2nd round for him to ride the pine....
not having adams in the lineup someone on either side would be a travesty. Hes so damn athletic and such a dominant run blocker a ZBS will be cake for him to thrive in. Theres much more question around gilbert and gilbert ceiling, Adams ability puts his potential through the roof
and legursky is terrible
Best line we could have would include a draft pick
if we use a first:
Gilbert/Starks, Warmack/Cooper, Pouncey, Decastro, Adams
if we use a second:
Gilbert/Starks, Pouncey, Barrett Jones, Decastro, Adams
if we use a 3rd:
Gilbert/Starks, Pouncey, Schwenke, Decastro, Adams
If we roll with what we got:
Gilbert/Starks, Beachem/Foster, Pouncey, Decastro, Adams

Honestly... if Beachum or Legs (who technically isnt even on the roster right now) is on the field... were in deep ****.
Id they arent sold on Adams, Starks will be brought back (i hope).
But didnt they state Gilbert was going to LT?
Gilbert, Foster, Pouncey, Decastro, Adams isnt a bad lineup... especially some of the jokers weve had playing OL since Super Bowl XL.
With the addition of any of the following: Coop, Warmack, Johnson, Thomas, Long, Pugh or Quessenberry. We could be on the verge of one of the best in the league!
Lets hope Gilbert doesn't start if so the rest of the line will be on IR by week three from his big *** rolling them up!
At this point I like Gilbert at LT with Adams at RT. Adams is just so dominant in the run game. I agree that he's going to surprise people. Gilbert on the other hand was the 13th rated tackle (out of both LTs and RTs) in terms of Pass Protection in 2011, his rookie year, according to ProFootballFocus. He's a better pass protector than run blocker for sure. There are definitely some questions about him, but I still like him a lot. I'm very confident that if healthy, this line will be exciting to watch (not normally something said about an offensive line lol).
