About Adam

adam-portraitAdam Drake is a diamond in the rough NFL wide receiver prospects. Drake was the 2014 leading receiver in the FCS with a total of 1,321 yards. Over his career there is no denying the impact Drake had on the Eastern Illinois football program, with 202 receptions (2nd in school history) for a total of 2,979 career receiving yards (2nd in school history) and 26 career TD receptions (4th in school history)

During his remarkable and breakout junior campaign, Drake was one of the most reliable and consistent pass-catchers in all of college football with 85 catches for 1,305 receiving years with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, now in the NFL, commanding the offense.

Drakes senior campaign was just as extraordinary, especially considering Garoppolo graduated. Drake caught 93 balls for 1,321 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Drake has great hands and go up and get the ball and is proven runner after the catch. He also has quick strides to pick up steam in a hurry vertically with strong cuts in his routes to create some separation vs. defenders. Has made a career out of getting behind the secondary for big plays, using his deep speed and also contributing on special teams coverages.

There is no denying that Drake is a prospect you need to check out in more detail. Set up an appointment today to meet or find out more about Adam.
