Andrew Adams, Safety
Another young player thrust into action due to injuries, Andrew Adams has been relatively solid all season. With fellow safeties Nat Berhe and Darian Thompson both out for large chunks of the season, the starting free safety job has been Adams to handle.
Like Jones, Adams notched his best game of the season against the Eagles. The rookie undrafted free agent recorded his first career interception while adding nine tackles and two passes defended to his stat line. His strong showing resulted in a team-high PFF grade of 91.8, a mark that was also good enough to land him among the top 10 highest graded players around the league in week nine.
Despite Berhe’s return to the active lineup against Philadelphia, Adams took the bulk of the workload at safety with Berhe recording only three defensive snaps.
This season, Adams has registered 29 total tackles with four passes defended. He continues to improve with each week and looks to be one of the true diamonds in the rough of the 2016 Draft class.
