We all know that Adams gets inconsistent with his technique. Sometimes he just shuts guys down and he has never really had trouble with speed as much as guys using different moves and stunts. He has the feet and size/strength combo to be a pro bowl left tackle if he can gain consistency. We all saw in the senior bowl how impressive he can be.


Also, Jonathan Martin's pro day results were not very impressive

Quote:
As impressive as DeCastro was, former linemate Jonathan Martin was disappointing.

Advertised as a top-notch athlete, the First Team All-Pac 12 left tackle was timed at 5.33 seconds in his first attempt at the 40-yard dash. Worse, this attempt was aided by the wind. Martin came in at 5.43 seconds, according to scouts, on his second attempt against the wind. Perhaps more alarming was that the 6-5, 307-pound Martin lifted the bar only 20 times during the bench press and wasn't as fluid or explosive as DeCastro during position drills.

Martin was also just average in the vertical (30") and broad jump (8'8") - at least in comparison to how other highly regarded offensive tackles performed at the Combine. While Martin's disappointing Pro Day will no doubt raise some concerns, three impressive years protecting Luck's blind side speaks for itself and will almost surely keep the big man in the draft's initial frame.
I mean, his numbers were slightly better than Mike Adams' (very slightly) but Martin is not nearly as big or as physical as Mike and is supposedly a soft player who gets by on his skills as a pure pass blocker. I know a lot of people don't like Martin. A lot of teams love Adams despite his poor combine b/c of his potential. It will be interesting to see where those two guys end up being taken.
