Where Adams is now.
Adams isn’t the best safety in the NFL, yet. As most expected, he immediately started for the Jets as a rookie before taking things to another level in his second pro season, being named to the Pro Bowl and being a second-team All-Pro honoree. He was even Defensive MVP of the Pro Bowl.
The Jets are surely going to continue to build their defense around him and will probably try to lock him up beyond his rookie contract. If Sam Darnold works out, there will be no second-guessing about Mahomes, but if Darnold ultimately fails, some will remember that the Jets could have had Mahomes.
