Former LSU Tiger Jamal Adams is more like a seasoned, savvy veteran than a wide-eyed rookie as he goes through pre-season paces with the New York Jets, reports say.
After two months, 10 organized team activities and three minicamp practices, Adams' teammates seem impressed, according to a report by NJ Advance Media.
"He's unbelievable," cornerback Morris Claiborne said.
Adams, drafted with the No. 6 pick, is already atop the depth chart at safety, NJ.com reported.

"He's been out here playing lights out," Claiborne said. "Picking up the defense, checking to different things, knowing what he wants to check to. He's having fun doing it, too. His spirit is awesome. He's having fun doing what he knows how to do, and that's football."
Adams is the fourth defensive back from LSU picked in the first round since 2011, continuing the program's tradition of churning out the nation's best secondary players.
PHILADELPHIA — Tre'Davious White looked at the reporter as if he were crazy.
In 2011 and 2012, LSU produced the first defensive back selected in consecutive drafts, a first by any school since the NFL’s merger in 1970. Add 2017 to that list, as Adams was the first DB chosen.
His LSU career was marked with crushing hits, game-changing sacks and critical pass breakups. His instincts and versatility are his biggest strengths, experts and analysts have said.
