2012 NFL Draft
After testing positive for drug use at the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine the Pittsburgh Steelers initially removed Adams from their draft board. Determined to be selected by his favorite team, Adams personally met with head coach Mike Tomlin, general manager Kevin Colbert, and team owner Art Rooney II. After professing his love for the Steelers and willingness to rectify his mistake, Adams was reconsidered by the historically strict franchise. He was selected in the second round (pick 56) of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
