Had this been an official score at the NFL Combine, it would have been good for fourth overall and best of any safety of the 2017 class.
Bleacher Report writer Matt Miller firmly believes Adams is a lock to be selected in the top five of the 2017 NFL Draft.
Just heard that Jamal Adams ran high 4.3 to low 4.4 at his pro day. Lock top five player.

Adams told reporters he believes the top five is where he belongs as well.
CBS Sports analyst Ryan Wilson has Adams going to the Tennessee Titans via the Los Angeles Rams at No. 5 in his latest mock draft, while Pro Football Focus has Adams falling out of the top 10 to the Cleveland Browns via the Philadelphia Eagles at No. 12 overall.

Where Adams is ultimately selected remains to be seen. What appears to be a certainty, however, is that the LSU standout will be a difference-maker on Sundays.
