Editor's note: As Penn State free safety and cornerback 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 to be taken anywhere from the third round to the fifth round by draft analysts. Amos played in the Senior Bowl and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout. Here's his 12th entry in the series:

I worked out for the Ravens, and I think I did pretty well. I went in there and talked to the coaches and showed my movement skills and how I tracked the ball. I think I showed them I can do everything on the football field as far as the defensive back position.

I can play corner or safety and I always show my corner skills and safety skills. It was pretty nice, their facilities in Owings Mills. I was very impressed. I met John Harbaugh. It was pretty cool meeting him. I met their secondary coach, Chris Hewitt, before. This is like the third time I've talked to him and their defensive coordinator, Dean Pees.

It was a lot of familiar faces because I knew or knew of the majority of the people at the local workout. [Penn State, Owings Mills offensive tackle] Donovan Smith and [Maryland wide receiver] Stefon Diggs were there.

Maryland high school football is pretty good. There are going to be more and more guys coming out each year. People from this area are getting more opportunities in the NFL.

I worked out for the Redskins for their secondary coach, Perry Fewell. It was a lot of footwork drills and going to get the ball. I got feedback on my footwork and transitions and stuff like that.

I did an event at James McHenry Elementary School in Baltimore. I told the kids my story, how to battle adversity and the things it takes to be successful. A lot of kids think stuff is supposed to be easy and they get down when things don't go their way. If you do everything the right way, eventually good things will come from that.

I was sitting in their seats not too long ago. The decisions I made versus my peers' decisions that led them in the wrong direction are things we talked about. We gave out some Under Armour gear, had pizza and I signed some autographs. [Next Level Nation founder] Cory Robinson was there and Devin Redd. It was a lot of fun.
