Seahawks defensive tackle Myles Adams
Adams has had an excellent training camp so far. He is certainly built to be a run-stopper and at 24 years old is probably still gaining strength to be a productive interior defensive lineman. But he has also flashed the potential to add some interior pass rush as well. He played only 33 snaps in 2021, his rookie season, and in one of those he had a quarterback hit.
Against the Bears on Thursday, even though he was playing against backups, Adams looked quick for his size – he’s 6’2” and over 300 pounds now – and was able to close space on the quarterback. Adams finished with 2 tackles but among that had a tackle for loss and a sack. He also added a quarterback hit too. That’s really good production from the inside.
The Seahawks are probably set on interior linemen with Poona Ford, Al Woods and Bryan Mone but as Seattle is switching to a 3-4 base from a 4-3, they might need to keep a defensive tackle capable of not only being good against the run but getting to the quarterback when the down would appear to be a run but ends with a pass.
Adams isn’t going to make a Pro Bowl probably but being part of a rotation would suit him and he would provide value. While the overall team was awful against Chicago, Adams was pretty good.
