Another terrific 2nd-3rd round receiver Dan Leberfeld

As we all know, this draft is loaded with wide receiver talent.

And because there is so much talent, there should be some pretty good receivers picked in the second and third rounds.

One of those talented guys, who fits into the 2nd-3rd round area, is Fresno State’s Davante Adams, who led the nation with 131 catches last season.

He felt after that monster season, it was time for the NFL, so he left school after his sophomore year.

“I just felt that I was NFL ready,” Adams said. “I know I’m NFL ready. I feel like I’ve done everything I can do to prove to NFL coaches, and whoever else is in charge, that I’m ready for the next step and put up some pretty good numbers this past season and the season before that.”

The season before that, he had 102 catches.

Adams also had a total of 38 touchdown catches at Fresno State, setting school and conference records.

The 6-1, 212 pound Palo Alto-native looks like he’s going to be a terrific pro.

“They’re going to get, in my eyes, the best receiver in this draft class, a very hard worker and a guy who really loves the game,” said Adams, when asked what he brings to the table. “I’m extremely passionate about what I do. And I think I definitely shows when I get out there on the field.”
