After being drafted with the 60th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, safety Nasir Adderley has been one of the most hyped rookies in the entire league. A ball-hawk who started his collegiate career at cornerback, Adderley boasts NFL bloodlines and has the picture-perfect skill-set to play opposite first-team All-Pro Derwin James.
However, while running the forty at his pro day, Adderley pulled up with a hamstring injury and had to cut his testing short. That same injury kept him from participating earlier this year in rookie mini-camp.
Fortunately for the Bolts, it was just reported by ESPN’s Eric Williams that Adderley has been cleared and will be full-go for the start of training camp.

With Adderley now in the fold, the competition between him and other safeties Rayshawn Jenkins and Jaylen Watkins can finally begin to see who can win that starting spot on the back-end for the 2019 season.
