DAVANTE ADAMS
WR, Fresno State

Adams only has two years of college football experience, but the numbers he put up at Fresno State were straight out of a video game. He had 233 catches for 3,030 yards and 38 touchdowns in his two years as a Bulldog.

In 2013, Adams helped Fresno State put on an offensive show.

Teaming up with quarterback Derek Carr, Adams caught 131 passes for 1,718 yards and 24 touchdowns during the 2013 campaign. He was a big reason the Bulldogs had the No. 1 passing game in college football — it averaged 394.8 passing yards per game.

Adams has good size (6-foot-2, 212 pounds) and has the athleticism to reach up and snag tough passes if he needs to.

The Seahawks may want to draft an offensive lineman with the No. 32 pick in the 2014 NFL draft, but if they choose to draft a playmaker instead, Adams would be a great choice.

Putting him alongside Percy Harvin to rotate with Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate and Jermaine Kearse might give the Seahawks one of the best receiving corps in the NFC.

Here are some of Adams highlights:
