Two offensive linemen from Washington are headed to the NFL combine this weekend. Keep an eye out for Trey Adams and Nick Harris as they look prove their draft value.
At 6’8 and 314 pounds, Trey Adams was a key cog at left tackle for the Chris Petersen-led Huskies. The Wenatchee native is a 2 time All-American and had it not been for an injury ravaged 2017 season, Trey could have easily had a 3rd All-American selection. His injury lingered but came back for his senior season and was on the Outland Trophy watch list.
Adams was a starter since his freshman year and he should excel at the next level. He is however, considered an injury risk, and that will drop him to perhaps the 2nd or 3rd round. He has off the chart grip strength and stays on blocks both in the passing and run game. His injury risk is his only weakness. Adams is a quintessential high risk, high reward draft pick.
While Trey got the hype and attention from the media, it was center Nick Harris who cemented himself as an NFL talent. While not as physically imposing as Trey Adams, Nick is still sizable at 6’1 and 293lbs. He is quite a bit more athletic than his companion on the line and shows the leadership expected out of the center position. Nick was an All-American in 2019 and has 3 All-Pac 12 selections.
Nick will get dinged for playing the center position which is vastly underrated in the NFL. He will most likely go in the 4th or 5th round, but from all accounts he has the goods to be an NFL starter. He is projected to be a solid player with a low ceiling but a low risk potential.
