Adams is entering his third season as the Huskies' starting left tackle.
In his way-too-early 2018 NFL mock draft, ESPN’s Mel Kiper projects Washington’s Trey Adams as a first-round pick.
Adams enters his junior season in 2017 as the left tackle on the Huskies’ veteran offensive line that also returns senior center Coleman Shelton and right tackle Kaleb McGary. Guards Andrew Kirkland and Nick Harris were part-time starters in 2016.
In 2015, Adams became the first true freshman in UW history to start at left tackle. He started all 14 games last fall, earning first-team all-Pac-12 recognition and second-team All-America honors from the FWAA.

“The hulking Adams (6-7, 302) is a big-time talent who’s still learning and improving and could shoot way up the Big Board in 2017. He has started 23 games at left tackle during the past two seasons, and he never looked out of place.”
