Fresh off a Senior Bowl performance, Penn State safety Adrian Amos has earned an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine.

Amos joins offensive tackle Donovan Smith and placekicker Sam Ficken, who have received invites to Indianapolis for the combine, which will be held Feb. 17-23 at Lucas Oil Stadium.

One of Penn State’s most reliable players, Amos also proved to be one of its most versatile, too. Recruited as a cornerback as a part of the class of 2011, Amos alternated between corner and safety throughout his Penn State career. He appeared in all 50 games and started 38. Amos missed most of the season finale Wisconsin in 2013 but remained a durable option otherwise.

A native of Baltimore, Md., Amos finished his career with 149 tackles, 26 passes broken up and seven interceptions.

He is ranked ninth among draft-eligible free safeties by CBSSports.com.
