Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams is legit, just believe in him regardless of his height

It is Measurement day at the NFL Scouting Combine and Vernon Adams the Oregon Ducks quarterback is one of the main guys we wanted to see. The reason is because he is a gunslinger. There have not been many great quarterbacks in the NFL under 5’11, but get ready to add one.

Today Vernon Adams the former Eastern Washington quarterback came in under 5’11, but it should not stop him from getting looks from NFL teams. Tape don’t lie.
