Davante Adams had a stomach-churning reaction to the latest NFL top 100 list

Davante Adams, Packers

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams was as surprised as anyone else when he saw himself unveiled this early on the Top 100 Players of 2020 list. The seven-year veteran was voted by his peers to sit at the 57th spot for this year’s rendition.

The 27-year old player voiced his reaction on Twitter:

The Packers wideout also suggested that he felt Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was underrated at No. 77.

Davante Adams had a short but meaningful collegiate career for the Fresno State Bulldogs. In two seasons, he accumulated a total of 3,030 receiving yards on 233 receptions and 38 touchdowns in 26 games played. He brought home the 2012 Mountain West Conference Freshman of the Year award along with a first-team All-MWC inclusion in two straight seasons.

Despite playing in a small collegiate conference, he was eventually drafted by the Green Bay Packers with the 53rd pick in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He eventually became a mainstay for the team after six seasons in the league.

In the divisional round of the 2019 NFL playoffs against the Seattle Seahawks, Adams caught eight passes for a postseason franchise record 160 yards and two touchdowns during the 28–23 victory. In the process, Adams became the only Packer with two 100+ receiving yard games in a single postseason and three 125+ such games in a career.

The three-time Pro Bowler closed out the 2019 season with 997 yards, 83 receptions, and five touchdowns in 12 games played. His performance still failed to push the Packers past eventual Super Bowl finalist San Francisco 49ers after suffering a 37-20 defeat in last season’s playoffs.

Adams and the rest of the Packers will try to write a different ending to their 2020 campaign as they aim to reach the Super Bowl stage once more. The team will go head to head with the Minnesota Vikings on September 13 at the U.S. Bank Stadium.
