Mike Adams feels like he is ready for training camp after making up for as much lost time as possible during mini-camp.
Adams missed OTA work because of the NFL's rule that prohibits player participation until the school year is over. Because Adams' school, Ohio State, is on the quarter system, it cuts out his taking part in OTAs. He was, however, able to take part in the mandatory mini-camp and the initial rookie camp.
"I went to rookie minicamp and the last minicamp, so I have a good feel for things," Adams said last weekat the NFL rookie symposium via FoxSportsOhio. "My coaches did a great job keeping us up with everything. I had the playbook the whole time, I had the film. I feel like I stayed up with things as best I could.
"As a rookie you're always learning, so I definitely have work to do."
Adams should have the inside track to be the Steelers' left tackle as a rookie. He lined up with the first team during mini-camp.
