LT Trey Adam’s injury derailed the Washington football team’s offense. Now he’s coming back off an ACL injury. Here are 5 reasons to celebrate.
The Washington Football team has been remarkably successful in recent years, coinciding with the reign of current head coach Chris Petersen. But Petersen coaches, so he needs to find those player who can deliver on the football field. Senior left tackle Trey Adams is such a player. One can argue that the most important role on a football team is the center, as that is the one position on the offensive line where the ball is exchanged to the quarterback. But the NFL votes on a different position with their draft choices and their salary dollars.
Blind side importance
And for good reason. The offensive line left tackle is responsible for the most vulnerable part to the right handed NFL quarterback. His blind side. NFL teams know this, and stack up their best pass rushers on the right side of their defensive line. That means offensive lines must stack up on that side as well. But since the offense is the mirror image of the defense, the right side strength on the DL translates into left side strength on the OL. Simple enough.
This season, left tackle Trey Adams is stepping out from the shadows into the full spotlight. Much like defensive lineman Vita Vea, Adams projected well to the 2018 NFL Draft before the season began. That now has him on the national watch list for the 2019 NFL Draft. So now the spotlight shines upon him. And that’s just fine. Trey Adams is ready.
