Adams is a wide receiver from South Florida who was selected 170th overall.

The Minnesota Vikings have signed a pair of draft picks. He owns the school record for receiving yards in a single season.

Odenigbo, the 220th pick overall, finished his Northwestern career second in school history with 23½ sacks, earning first-team All-Big Ten honors from conference coaches. In just three seasons with the Bulls, Adams totaled 3,497 all-purpose yards, which ranks fourth in team history. Additionally, Adams carried the ball 11 times for 87 yards and a touchdown. He became more prolific as a rusher, however, accumulating 231 yards on 23 rushing attempts and getting into the end zone five times. At this time two years ago, they had signed all 10 draft picks.
