2 of 3

#22 SS Andrew Adams ( 5’11| 197 | 4.58)

UConn’s leading tackler this season with 89 and had 3.5 for loss. Adams has been a consistent play-maker for the Huskies the last three seasons with 9 interceptions and 15 passes defended. He was second team All-American conference this year. He’s a solid, well-rounded safety prospect, who doesn’t make many mistakes and is consistent verse both the run and pass. His lack of one stand out skill or elite athleticism may drop him to late in day 3, but his reliability should get him drafted on day 3 at some point.

Projection: 6th-7th round

#35 ILB Graham Stewart (6’1 | 228 | 4.78)

Was second on the team in 2014 with 95 tackles, but has lead the Huskies in tackles for loss for two seasons in a row with 10.5 in 2014 and 9.5 so far this season. He moved inside in 2015 to replace recent 7th round pick Yawin Smallwood, which resulted in lower tackles totals, but improved his coverage abilities. Stewart is the most athletic of the UConn LBs as a tranfer from Florida in 2012. He projects as a 3-4 ILB at the next level.

Projection: 7th-FA

Next: Marshall
