Draft factoid: Davante Adams in red zone
By Pat McManamon
Draft day looms ever closer. As it approaches, it seems appropriate to start your day with a tidbit or two on draftable guys -- with an eye toward those the Cleveland Browns might select. All information is courtesy of ESPN Stats and Information.
Fresno State receiver Davante Adams was reliable where it mattered most: In the red zone (inside the 20). Adams led the FBS in receptions (131) and touchdowns (24), but he also led the FBS with 27 receptions and 12 TDs in the red zone. Quarterback Derek Carr completed 71.1 percent of his passes when throwing to Adams in the red zone, 57.4 when throwing to anyone else. Adams also led the FBS with 13 receiving TDs of 20 yards or more.
