One of the early undrafted free agents who has reportedly agreed to sign with the Detroit Lions, Arkansas State’s Jonathan Adams might remind Lions fans of a former Detroit standout.

Adams plays with the same widebody style and extended catch radius along the sideline of Kenny Golladay. A bigger receiver at 6-2 and 210 pounds, Adams is very adept at making catches outside his body and over defensive backs. He had some spectacular grabs for the Red Wolves while working with non-NFL caliber quarterback play. He’s not as fast as Golladay and doesn’t have the breadth of experience working deeper routes, however.

Adams was often projected as a Day 3 pick. Landing him after the draft is a good deal for GM Brad Holmes. All undrafted free agent reports are to be taken as unofficial until they appear on the NFL transaction log.
