Adrian Amos Chronicling Path to the NFL for Baltimore Sun

If you’ve always wondered how a Nittany Lion prepares for the transition from college to the pros, you’re in luck. Senior safety Adrian Amos is detailing his journey to the NFL in a series of articles for the Baltimore Sun.

Today marked the first article in the series by Amos, in which he discusses his experience at the Senior Bowl, a visit to see patients at the hospital in Mobile, Alabama, and his culinary excursions. The Calvert Hall high school standout is a Baltimore native, leading the Cardinals to the MIAA Class A Conference Championship and the No. 1 state ranking in 2010 before enrolling at Penn State. The former Baltimore City Defensive Player-of-the-Year recorded two tackles in the Senior Bowl last week on Jan. 24.

Here’s what Amos had to say about the long week of practice leading up the All-Star game:

“They kept us busy. It was really long days preparing us for what it will be like at the next level. Obviously, it’s a long tradition. Many NFL players, Hall of Famers, have played in that game.

This is my dream, so I’m not going to complain about the hard work that goes into that.”

Amos who measured in at 6-foot, 215 pounds, said that a lot of teams liked his versatility and film and are waiting to see how he’ll perform at the Combine, which could boost his draft stock. The All-Big Ten honorable mention has been projected anywhere from the third to the fifth round in the NFL Draft, which takes place from April 30-May 2. Amos said he’s back at IMG Academy’s training facility in Bradenton, Florida, and that he’s headed home to Baltimore after February’s combine for a little while before heading back to State College for his Pro Day on March 19.
