Vernon Adams thinks he has good feel for Chip Kelly Eagles offense

New, comments

Will the San Francisco 49ers take a look at quarterback Vernon Adams in the draft? Based on some of his answers, it certainly could make some sense.

The San Francisco 49ers are in the midst of figuring out their quarterback situation, and Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams is a guy that has been on the radar for fans. Adams spoke with the media on Wednesday at the NFL Combine, and had a chance to discuss Chip Kelly's offense, and his own strengths and weaknesses as a quarterback.

We'll have a full transcript later today, but in the meantime, here are a few highlights of Adams' press conference. He seems to have taken time to check out Chip Kelly's offense with the Philadelphia Eagles. Kelly has said he will run something similar with the 49ers, so that would certainly bode well for Adams' learning curve. Adams also discussed progressions and reading defenses as a strength, while looking to not run from the pocket too soon as an area for improvement.
