You have to love versatility in football because not many can play two positions at a high level. DAngelo Amos is a kid that can do several things at a very high level.
Amos is a 6010, 184 pound All-Conference safety and punt returner. The Richmond, Virginia native was a utility player in high school but also a tri-athlete for Meadowbrook High. He ran track, played basketball and was a standout football player. The safety is fast, he was a 4×100 relay track star and an All-Region long jumper.
Amos would attend West Point Prep for one year before joining JMU, but was able to keep all his eligibility. He finished with 4 interceptions at West Point Prep. As a freshman in 2016, Amos redshirted.
In 2017 as a redshirt freshman, Amos began to show off his skills as a special teamer. He was the team’s primary punt returner and finished the season with 18 returns for 284 yards and a touchdown.
As a redshirt sophomore in 2018, Amos continued to shine. He started all 13 games as a safety and a punt returner. He finished with 25 returns for 549 yards and 3 touchdowns to go along with his 64 tackles and six pass break-ups.
Last season, Amos blew up. he played in all 16 games for the Dukes. He was an All-Conference player two years in a row as a return man and safety. He finished with 33 returns, 426 yards returning and added another touchdown. On defense he racked up 57 total tackles, to go along with a rack of other stats including two interceptions and get this three blocked kicks. There are not many super star athletes in college football, but JMU has one this year.
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:
There is an easy way to make me fall in love with a player. You show me film of a kid that can do it all. I love Special teams because it can be a separating point for me when I look at the value of a player. DAngelo Amos is a special talent. you cannot take that away from him. He is an elusive return man and an even better safety. I think of Chargers safety Desmond King and that is the type of athlete Amos is. He is special and is a top prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner
