Jamal Adams would fit Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams’ philosophy like a glove and he would be an instant upgrade at the strong safety position. Adding him with Myles Garrett would really change the Cleveland defense as it would be able to attack more, which is Williams’ calling card.
Adams is the type of player that would thrive in the AFC North as he is an in-your-face defender. His strength in run support would be a welcome addition when facing the Steelers and Le’Veon Bell twice a year. His ability to cover tight ends would help going up against Tyler Eifert of the Cincinnati Bengals.
Adams presence in the middle of the field would have some receivers keeping an eye out for him on crossing routes, thus losing their focus on the catch.
The bad news for Cleveland is that there is not much hope that Adams will last until the No. 12 pick in the draft. If they are to make a play for him they would have to trade into the Top 5 for certain, maybe even as high as No. 3. As great as a prospect Adams is the cost to move up for him is probably too great for the Browns to consider.
Jamal Adams would remind Cleveland fans of former No. 2 overall pick Eric Turner (RIP), however, unless something unlikely happens in the days leading up to the draft, Adams will be plying his trade on another team.
