Adrian Amos, Safety, Penn State

The Eagles have shown plenty of interest in Amos during the pre-draft process and rightfully so. The Eagles current options at safety opposite starter Malcolm Jenkins include Earl Wolff, E.J. Biggers, Jerome Couplin III, Chris Maragos, and Ed Reynolds. So clearly the need for an upgrade is there.

At 6’0″, 218 lbs., Amos has the size and speed with a 4.4 40 -yard dash that the Eagles like at safety. He’s durable as well, having started all 37 games the last 3 years at Penn State. Amos has the skill set the Eagles prefer in safeties, he spent time covering the slot and playing a centerfielder type role in college. Adding Amos would allow defensive coordinator Billy Davis to implement more of his multiple defense scheme by having interchangeable safeties.
