Penn State senior DB Adrian Amos has accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.
Amos will join teammate Mike Hull (linebacker) at the annual competition. Over the summer, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote that the 6-foot, 209-pound senior takes "aggressive angles and explodes downhill" on his tackles. Unlike many collegiate corners, Amos already has a decent amount of bulk and muscle. The team leader has a 4.45 40-time. Nov 10 - 9:49 PM

Penn State defensive coordinator Bob Shoop said senior DB Adrian Amos has the talent and versatility to be the "best defensive back in all of college football."

Amos has already started 25 games at Penn State, 19 at CB and six at safety. The expectation is that he'll start at safety this fall, though the coaching staff understands he can easily be shifted back to corner if needed. "Amos is well built with good height, length and overall frame for the position, displaying adequate bulk and strength. He takes aggressive angles and explodes downhill while also showing the start/stop quickness to recover and alter his path mid-momentum," wrote CBS Sports' Dane Brugler. "Amos has taken positive steps in his development each season and with a strong senior year in 2014, he could really help himself in the eyes of NFL evaluators."

Penn State defensive coordinator John Butler announced that junior DB Adrian Amos will be the team's third cornerback.

Amos started every game at cornerback in 2012 but shifted to strong safety during spring practice. He will man the slot behind starters Trevor Williams and Jordan Lucas in nickel situations. "He's got all the skills," Butler said of Amos, per ESPN. "He's a guy we can put in different spots." Amos is a big, sturdy defensive back who earned honorable-mention All-Big Ten honors last year while collecting 44 tackles, two interceptions and 2.5 tackles for loss.
