Adrian Amos, Mike Hull Accept Invites To Senior Bowl

The Nittany Lions will have at least two representatives at the 2015 Senior Bowl, as linebacker Mike Hull and safety Adrian Amos have accepted invites to the game.

The Senior Bowl is an annual all-star game held in Mobile, Alabama, and features some of the best college football talent in the country. The game showcases NFL Draft hopefuls who have completed the entirety of their college eligibility, and gives players an opportunity to flash their talent in front of NFL scouts and general managers alike, in hopes of boosting their stock.

Hull’s invitation comes with no surprise, as the Nittany Lion linebacker has been making plays all over the field. Hull has notched 99 total tackles on the season, good for 10th in the nation, while also tallying two sacks, an interception, and a forced fumble.

Adrian Amos’ statistics are not spectacular, but the senior has had himself a solid season thus far, notching 24 tackles, two interceptions, and four pass breakups.

Hull and Amos have been integral to the success of Penn State’s highly ranked defensive unit, and it’s always nice to see players rewarded for their on-field success. The game will give the two players ample opportunities to prove their worth to NFL scouts, and hopefully land them on certain NFL radars.

Don’t expect Amos and Hull to be the only Nittany Lions represented in Mobile, as there will should be more Penn Staters invited to this season’s contest.

The Senior Bowl will be held at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile on Saturday, Jan. 24 at 3:00 p.m. central time.
