    Yah I know a lot about him. He was on that nasty cornhuskers Dline. I liked him as a late round pick last year. He has some tools to be a backup in the NFL but he won't cut it.

    College Profile:

    http://www.huskers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPSID=4&SPID=22&DB_OEM_ID=100&ATCLID=5056&Q_SEASON=2005

    * 2005 Honorable-Mention All-Big 12 (Coaches)
    * 2005 Cletus Fischer Native Son Award
    * 2004 Brook Berringer Citizenship Team
    * 2003 First-Team Academic All-Big 12
    * 2003 Big 12 Commissioner’s Spring Academic Honor Roll
    * Two-Time Big 12 Commissioner’s Fall Academic Honor Roll (2002, 2005)

    2005 (Senior)
    Titus Adams was a key part of Nebraska’s interior defensive line for each of his four seasons in a Husker uniform. Adams capped his career with an outstanding senior season in 2005, helping the Blackshirt defense lead the nation in sacks (50) and tackles for loss (124).

    The 6-3, 300-pound Adams finished his Nebraska career with a strong senior season. Adams played in all 12 games, with 11 starting assignments, and completed the regular season with 50 total tackles, tops among Nebraska defensive linemen.

    Adams also had five tackles for loss and eight quarterback hurries, helping a Nebraska defense that ranked in the top 30 nationally in scoring defense, pass efficiency defense, rush defense and total defense. Adams’ play was recognized as he was an honorable-mention All-Big 12 selection by the conference coaches.

    Adams had 32 tackles in the final four regular-season games in 2005, the best stretch of games in his career. Included in that period was an 11-tackle effort at Kansas, followed by a career-high 12 tackles on Senior Day against Kansas State. The Omaha native had a hand in two sacks (Wake Forest, Colorado) in 2005, part of Nebraska’s nation-leading total of 50.

    Adams was a regular in the Nebraska lineup for four seasons. A starter each of his final two years, Adams played in 49 games in his NU career, including 22 starts.

    A solid performer in the classroom, Adams earned his undergraduate degree in business adminstration in December of 2005.

    2004 (Junior)
    Adams played in all 11 games, with 10 starts and his only non-start at Texas Tech against the Red Raiders' pass-happy offensive attack. He finished his junior season with 37 tackles, including 17 unassisted stops. He made eight tackles for loss, totaling nine yards. His eight TFLs ranked fifth on the team.

    Adams opened the season with a career-high tying five tackles against Western Illinois, when he also racked up three tackles for loss. Adams also made five stops against Baylor, including two tackles for loss. The junior made four tackles each against Southern Miss and Pittsburgh, and made at least two tackles in all 11 games. He had nine quarterback hurries on the season to rank third on the team, including a career-high three at Pittsburgh.

    2003 (Sophomore)
    Adams played in all 13 games as a second-team defensive end, while moving inside to tackle in passing situations. He finished the year with 27 tackles, including 11 unassisted stops, led by a season-high five tackles at Texas. Adams showed a nose for the football with two interceptions and a pair of fumble recoveries. He returned an interception against Texas A&M three yards for a touchdown to give NU a 48-6 lead in the fourth quarter. Adams' pick capped a school-record tying eight-takeaway day for the Blackshirt defense. Adams added his second interception of the year at Texas.

    Adams opened the year with four tackles in a 17-7 win over Oklahoma State, then made his only 2003 start against Utah State at defensive tackle in place of the injured Le Kevin Smith. He responded with three tackles, a quarterback hurry and recovered a fumble in NU's 31-7 win. Adams added his second fumble recovery of the season in the second quarter against Troy State. In addition to an interception at Texas, Adams tied his career high with five tackles, and had four tackles and a season-high two hurries a week later in a 24-3 win at Kansas.

    Adams' athleticism prompted the Husker coaching staff to give him time on offense. The Omaha native lined up in a tight end spot in a power set, and was the intended receiver on a goal-line play at Colorado.

    2002 (Redshirt Freshman)
    Adams played in 13 games and made 21 tackles, with a season-high five stops vs. Utah State, and four each against Kansas and McNeese State. He had three tackles for loss for 18 yards, including two sacks for 17 yards, and six hurries. Adams had an eight-yard sack against Utah State and caused an interception. His second sack came against Kansas when he also had a quarterback hurry that caused an interception. He filled in at rush end against Kansas when the Huskers were hit hard by injury at the position.

    2001 (Redshirt)
    A highly touted in-state prospect, Adams redshirted in 2001.

    Before Nebraska (Creighton Prep HS)
    Adams was a two-time All-Nebraska defensive lineman for Coach Tom Jaworski at Omaha Creighton Prep High School. He was a three-year starter and helped the Junior Jays to a Class A state title in 1999 and a runner-up finish in 2000.

    Adams made 81 tackles as a senior, including 12 tackles for loss, seven sacks and 15 quarterback hurries. He was a two-year Omaha World-Herald All-Nebraska selection and the honorary defensive captain in 2000. Adams was a two-time Lincoln Journal Star Super-State honoree and that publication’s Defensive Player of the Year as a senior. He also earned All-America honors from Parade, PrepStar, Student Sports and Rivals.com. Adams attended Big Red Football School in 2000. He was also recruited by Tennessee and Iowa State, but only visited Nebraska.

    Personal
    The son of Frances Adams and Jerry Johnson, Titus was born on Jan. 28, 1983. His stepmother is Diane Johnson. Adams earned his undergraduate degree in business administration in December of 2005 and was a first-team academic All-Big 12 pick in 2003. He was a three-time Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll selection during his Nebraska career.

    He was named to the 2004 Brook Berringer Citizenship Team for his work in the community. Adams was involved in a number of community outreach activities, including American Education Week, School is Cool Week, and was a volunteer speaker at Omaha's St. James School and the Quality Living Program in Omaha.

    This kid was very productive in college, if he has good character and can produce expect him to stick around.

    LOL .. thanks .. I guess what I meant was if anyone had seen him play in college. The Bugeaters have kind of falled off the mainstream since Osborne left.

    If the dude can live down the Brook Berringer Citizenship Team Curse, I think he can be a solid contributor for us.

    Haha I dunno if you're being serious, but being on a good citizenship team is a curse? Pacman and Chris Henry must've been petrified of it, seeing as they did everything to stay off it. And I thought the Chunky's Campbell Soup curse was out there.

    Purely camp fodder for this Saturday, now that McKinney is doing much better. Here's his draft profile, courtesy of CNN/SI.



    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/2006/draft/players/18464.html


    Titus Adams- DT Nebraska
    BIO: Three-year starter who posted 50/5/1.5 as a senior, after junior numbers of 37/8. All-Academic recipient in the past.

    POSITIVES: Well-built tackle best stuffing the run. Plays with terrific pad level, keeps his feet driving up the field and has a short burst of speed. Cognizant and quickly locates the ball. Effectively works his hands and redirects to ball carriers.

    NEGATIVES: Easily blocked by lesser opponents. Wears down over the course of a game. Marginal pass-rushing skills.

    ANALYSIS: Chasing hard to get involved in the action, Adams has flashed skill the past two years. Needs to improve his playing strength, stamina and the details of his position yet has the skills to find a place in the NFL.

    PROJECTION: Mid Fifth Round

    Yeah, I agree he'll get cut, but...

    It makes no sense to take the time and effort to cut Cryer, than go pick-up Adams. He must posses some talent the coaches want to take a look at.

    I looked, but I must have missed your thread. I thought it was weird that wasn't already posted. Looks like one of the mods must have merged the two threads though.

    Yes that merge is from me. Just trying to clean up the threads.

    Now back to our regularly scheduled claiming of Adams thread.
