Editor's note: As Penn State free safety Adrian Amos gets ready for the NFL draft, the former Calvert Hall standout will be sharing details about his preparations with Baltimore Sun reporter Aaron Wilson. The 6-foot, 218-pound All-Big Ten Conference honorable-mention selection has been projected anywhere from the third round to the fifth round by draft analysts. Here's his fifth entry in the series, coming off his participation in the NFL scouting combine at Lucas Oil Stadium, where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 seconds and had a 35.5-inch vertical leap, a 10-foot-2 broad jump, completed the 20-yard shuttle in 4.03 seconds and the 60-yard shuttle in 11.33 seconds:

I'm back at school, and it's cool getting back to familiar turf. I'm feeling pretty good.


I'm working out here at school before my Pro Day on March 19.

I'm to myself, mostly. I come in the building and do my workouts and go back to the apartment, stuff like that. Nothing too exciting.

It doesn't feel like I'm back on the team, but it's a familiar area. It's nice to be here.

There's been some snow here, but we have an indoor facility to work out in. I've been doing a lot of running stuff, just keeping in shape and brushing up on stuff.

I haven't decided what tests I'll do at the Pro Day. I'm preparing for everything. We'll see what all I do. I know I could test a lot better. I know I can improve on all my numbers.

I don't have any workouts or visits with teams until after my Pro Day.

I haven't been doing much. I'm chilling.

When I'm not working out, I take care of my body. I do a lot of stuff hot tub, cold tub. I stay busy talking to people on the phone.


I might go see the new Will Smith movie, "Focus."

I don't really go out to restaurants that much. There's stuff I can't eat that I used to, like wings and pizza. I used to get that stuff all the time, but I've got to eat healthy. If I ate that stuff, I'd be a linebacker.

The Pro Day is just another opportunity to show what you can do. I'm going to do all the position work and football stuff; that's my strong suit. I'm excited just to get on the field again.
