Mike Adams (born March 10, 1990) is an American football offensive tackle for the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers. He played collegiate football at Ohio State University. Adams is considered to be one of the best offensive tackles of his draft class.[1]

Early career[edit]

Adams attended Dublin Coffman High School in Dublin, Ohio, where he was an All-State selection as a junior and senior. Regarded as a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Adams was listed as the No. 1 offensive tackle prospect in the class of 2008.[2]

Professional career[edit]

2012 NFL Draft[edit]

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.
