  Draft Scout by Conference

  Kay'Ron Adams spent much of last season at home, his ankle wrapped and elevated. He transferred from Rutgers to UMass after the 2020 season for more opportunities. An injury ended his debut season as a Minuteman in the fifth game against Toledo. "Honestly, it really hurt me because I never pictured being without [football]," Adams said Friday at UMass' first practice of fall camp. "Having time to sit there and not be able to go to practice and just having my foot up all day put me in a place where this is gonna make me or break me. I'm either gonna come back harder I'm just not come back at all." He returned in time for spring practice but to the defensive backfield rather than the offensive backfield.

Adams practiced as a "viper," coach Don Brown's hybrid linebacker/safety position that demands elite athleticism and strong football knowledge. "That was all my decision. I wanted to come back and do something crazy," Adams said. "My mind was just everywhere." Adams eventually returned to the running back room but gained a newfound understanding of how to attack defenses. "I realized why is the defense doing this? Why is that happening?" he said. "It helped me understand why I'm doing what I'm doing. It actually benefited me a lot." - Daily Hampshire Gazette
