    PROS: Cautious with remaining patient when opening out of phase to run downfield with targets. Able to match the timing of receivers snapping their routes off even with the full speed action of threatening his technique vertically. Adebo has flexible hips that are able to redirect with little wasted motion. Once noticing that wideouts are snapping off their patterns, he’s able to stick his upfield foot in the ground and drive off of it in a split second. If not able to breakup passes, his quick reactions help him secure tackles directly following catches.

    Former days as a wide receiver are noticeable. Highly competitive when battling at the catch point. Plays through the hands and arms of receivers and refuses to be satisfied until he sees the ball hit the ground or in his grasp. Active and scrappy hands that are aggressive when attacking the ball out of the air.

    CONS: Only a two-year starter at the position and still feeling his way around the nuances of it. Positive flashes are extremely bright, but there are moments of where his newness to the position show up. Play awareness and technique comfort are two of the easiest to see that need tweaking from a demanding, but patient position coach. 

    Balance can become an issue and he can be left reaching when guessing wrong. Employing an even more patient approach instead of becoming so eager to effect passes will need to become a developed trait. Otherwise his somewhat aggressive nature may fall victim to multi-move routes or ones that involve heavy influence.
