Jaquan Amos was the 45th best player in Pennsylvania leaving high school in the Class of 2017. The Northeast High School graduate was a force who helped lead his team to the Class 6A Championship in 2016.
Amos’ swag cannot go unnoticed. He is a baiter, he will get a quarterback to throw a certain way then jump the route. Amos a Philly native has been a beast for the Wildcats.
Last season, Amos finished the season with 49 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, and four interceptions. He also broke up 7 passes. Quarterbacks were smart to stay away from him near the end of the year.
In his career, Amos has 8 career interceptions, and has been a force on the Wildcats defense since his freshman season. He has racked up 148 tackles and has broke up 17 passes in his career. He is not afraid come down and hit you. In 2018, Amos led the team in tackles, so do not think because he is a 6010, 190 pound corner he will not come up and lay wood. He may not be Deion Sanders in coverage, but he is a better tackler for sure!
I expect a huge season in 2020. I think quarterbacks will stay away from him more this year. With Malik Fisher and Forrest Rhyne applying pressure to the QB though, they maybe force to throw his way. If that happens I can smell some picks in the near future.
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:
Jaquan Amos is one player opposing quarterbacks hate to face on Villanova. The long and athletic defensive back is a playmaker in the FCS. His versatility is key in the FCS. He can play outside, inside at the nickel or even at safety. NFL teams love this and I think adding in his length (6010), he will get much deserved attention if we ever do get football running again. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner
