4. Trey Adams
The next player on this list is probably the highest rated prospect among the eight players the Buffalo Bills signed as undrafted free agents. Trey Adams is an offensive tackle out of the University of Washington who has shown flashes that he could be a solid starter at tackle in the NFL.
The issue is that Adams has had some major injuries during his collegiate career, with an ACL tear in 2017 and then a back injury in 2018. The good news for Adams is that he recovered this past season and played every game.
The scouting report by Kyle Crabbs at The Draft Network paints a good picture that Adams has potential to be a contributor in the NFL.
"Summary – Trey Adams is a bit of a high risk, high reward prospect. His college career has been littered with significant injures — but if you can get past the durability issues, Adams brings requisite length, initial quickness and power at the point of attack to be a productive left tackle at the NFL level. Adams’ issues in lateral situations and in deep pass sets suggest he’s more favorable for a WCO offense and utilized in inside zone or gap/power rushing concepts. Potential starter at NFL level."
The reason that Adams is here at this point in the rankings is that the Buffalo Bills can afford to be patient because of the depth they have at offensive tackle. The team brings back both starters in Dion Dawkins and Cody Ford, along with backups Ty Nsehke and Daryl Williams. It wouldn’t be surprising if Adams ended up on the practice squad as a way for the Bills to give him a year to fully recover and work with the strength and conditioning staff to avoid future injuries.
