Adrian Amos' NFL draft diary: Chapter 10

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 has been projected to be taken anywhere from the third round to the fifth round by draft analysts. Here's his 10th entry in the series:

I visited the Philadelphia Eagles this week. It went pretty good. They have a pretty nice facility.


I got good feedback from them. They like my versatility at safety and being able to play cornerback.

We went to the film room and went over a lot of things. They wanted to see how we pick up defenses and just get an overall understanding of my knowledge of the game.

I met with Chip Kelly. I had a brief conversation with him. He mentioned the "Supa Six," which was cool. We were the "Supa Six" that stayed at Penn State [Amos, Deion Barnes, Bill Belton, Kyle Carter, Allen Robinson and Donovan Smith].

I got a pretty good vibe. They said they liked me. I just do what I can control. I don't really get up and down based on what people say. We'll see how much all the teams really like me on draft day.

There's a lot of talent in Baltimore and Maryland, and people are sleeping on it over the last four years. We're taking it up a notch. Going into my senior year of high school, we were beating everybody in seven-on-seven tournaments. That's when I realized we had just as much talent here as anybody. It's just a smaller state. What we have here is quality.

I've been working out all week, trying to get ready. All my working out now is getting ready for camp. As soon as the draft process is over, it's a relief to find out where I'm going to be and where I'm going to be living. Camp starts right away. I have to be ready to run and be in football shape.

I saw "Fast & Furious 7" and "Get Hard." "Fast 7" was real good, a real good ending. I've seen all the "Fast and the Furious" movies. "Get Hard" wasn't as funny as I expected it to be. There were some funny parts, but it wasn't as funny as I thought it would be, with as funny as Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell are. I wouldn't vouch for it with a 100 percent recommendation.
