The Packers drafted Adams with their third and final draft pick Friday, extending Ted Thompson's streak of taking at least one defensive lineman in each of his 13 drafts as general manager.

In fact, the defensive lineman out of Auburn was holding his newborn baby when he got the phone call from the Packers that they had just selected him in the third round.

"Man, there (are) really no words I can say", Adams said. "From getting my son and then the Packers calling me, there's nothing I can say. I'm just thankful for the blessing".

"Becoming a father", Adams said when asked which was a bigger deal. "My love for the game is extremely high, but it will always be second when it comes to family".

Even with his size, he is light on his feet, running a 4.8 40 yard dash at the combine in February.

Adams played 52 games at Auburn and started 36, including 26 straight, and he finished with 151 career tackles.
