Having a star on your team is nice. Now, having a young star on your team is even better. Would Jamal Adams be a good fit with the Dallas Cowboys?
Every year, NFL franchises are at the draft trying to pick the next big star. More or less, they are trying to pick the Jamal Adams‘ of the NFL. Whatever they can do to get their hands on a prospect that has superstar potential, they will do it.
His name has constantly been brought up to be possibly moved by the New York Jets. One of the teams that have been brought up a lot is the Dallas Cowboys. Would Jamal Adams be a good fit with the Cowboys?
The President and His Craft
In case you don’t know what he has done or just how good he is, I’ll try to give you a little glimpse of it. Just know this, you gotta see it for yourself to really appreciate it.
In 2017, the New York Jets drafted Adams with the sixth overall pick. Heading into the draft,he was given a 7.00 rating, meaning he is a Pro Bowl talent. I think that was a very accurate rating.
Adams joined a struggling Jets team and made an immediate impact. His rookie season saw him make 83 tackles with nine of them for a loss and 2.0 sacks. While he didn’t pick off a pass, he did defend six of them while forcing one fumble and recovering two.
In year two for the young star, he made his first Pro Bowl while also making one interception, the first of his career. Making 115 tackles with 3.5 sacks and doubling the passes defended from the season prior is more than enough reason to make the Pro Bowl.
In 2019, he was limited to 14 games but he made the most of it. With 75 tackles, 6.5 sacks and seven passes defended, no one could take their eyes off Adams. He returned his only interception of the year for a touchdown, and recovered one fumble which was also returned for a touchdown.
Adams is a surreal safety that hits hard and never makes it easy for anyone he is lining up a hit on. He routinely gets to the quarterback on the blitz, and still gets the job done in coverage.
Since his play against the run is so good, people forget how effective he can be against the pass. Sure, he only has two interceptions in three seasons, but he also defended 25 passes and held quarterbacks to a 55 percent completion percentage in 2018 and 2019.
A Pro Bowl in 2018 and 2019, a first-team All-Pro in 2019, and a second-team All-Pro in 2018. That is exactly what Jamal Adams will bring to any team. If he can dominate on a depleted Jets lineup for three consecutive seasons, he can dominate on any team.
