Davante Adams: Closes season with 73 yards

Adams recorded five receptions on nine targets for 73 yards in Saturday's 31-13 win over the Chiefs.

Analysis: Adams paced the Raiders in targets and yards, though his overall output was modest. He delivered long gains of 22, 18 and 13 yards to highlight his day, but he still produced fewer than 100 yards for the fourth time in his last five games. Adams finished his first season with the Raiders with 100 receptions, 1,516 yards and 14 touchdowns. He'll return to Las Vegas for 2023, though it's unclear who his quarterback will be.

Davante Adams Biography

Davante Adams was born to Douglas and Pamela Adams and attended Palo Alto High School. He was a key two-way player in his senior year, when Palo Alto won a state championship. During this season, he had 64 catches for 1,094 yards and 12 touchdowns. Defensively, he was a gifted cornerback who had 44 tackles, an interception, and two forced fumbles.

He was also the kind of two-sport athlete that Madden has suggested shows off a true talent. He lettered all fours years in high school basketball, averaging a solid nine points and snagging just under six rebounds and six assists.

College

Adams shined in college when he was recruited by Fresno State. After redshirting his first year, he played in 2012 and had 102 receptions for 1,312 yards while scoring 14 touchdowns. He was the Freshman of the Year for the Mountain West conference and MVP of the 2012 Hawaii Bowl.

In 2013, he had 131 receptions for 1,719 yards while scoring 24 touchdowns. This made him the leading receiver in the nation, setting a Mountain West record for touchdowns: he currently ranks fourth in all of college football history. He declared his intention to enter the 2014 draft late in the 2013 season.

Watch his college highlights here.

The Combine And NFL Draft

In his NFL combine prior to the draft, Davante Adams was rated a 5.96. His 40 time was 4.56 seconds, his broad jump 123 inches, his three cone drill time 6.82 seconds, and the 20-yard shuffle 4.30 seconds. He received top performer marks in his vertical jump, which was 39.5 inches.

Adams scores and Fresno history were impressive enough to inspire the Green Bay Packers to draft him in the second round. When signed, he earned a four-year contract of $3,933,402. His base salary has risen every year since he signed, from a starting $420,000 to a projected $956,373 in 2017.

2015 NFL Season

After a relatively low key rookie 2014 season (with just 38 receptions and 446 yards), Davante Adams had a strong season in 2015 with 50 receptions for 483 years. In a packed lineup, Adams remained a reliable third-option who never fumbled and who averaged just under 10 yards every reception. The only area he declined was in touchdowns: in 2014, he had three while in 2015 he had one.

2016 NFL Season

With injuries plaguing the Packers and Rodgers struggling to play consistently, the Packers fell to a surprising 4-6 record and were trailing division rivals Detroit Lions. In this scenario, Davante Adams emerged for his breakout season and became one of the key cogs in an 8-0 streak that led the Packers to the playoffs.

In 16 games  Adams had 75 receptions and a staggering 997 yards. This was good for an average of 13.3 yards per reception. While losing just one of two fumbles, his touchdowns jumped to a staggering 12 (with one two-point conversion) giving him a total of 74-points for the 2016 regular season.

Personal Life

Adams was born in Palo Alto, where he attended high school and excelled in both football and basketball. During his senior year, he was one of the most highly-recruited receivers in the nation. Succeeding in college helped him catch the eye of a beautiful young woman named Devanne Villarreal.

Villarreal is still together with her childhood sweetheart and was with him at home when he was drafted. She finished her degree at Fresno State and is now an esthetician. His Twitter and Instagram accounts show a pleasant and low-key young man who is enjoying his success.
