Amos, Adrian


Card: Sage 2015
Acquired: 2016, Hobby Box Breaker

At Penn State, Adrian Amos hit the field early for the Nittany Lions at safety. He played in 12 games as a backup in 2011, and started all 37 games over his last three years at the school.  He finished with 101 solo tackles and 48 assists, 9 tackles for loss, 3 sacks and 5 interceptions for 192 yards and 15 pass deflections.  Amos had impressive pro day demonstrating his athleticism and showcasing ability to run with the big dogs, with 21 reps of 225 pounds, and a 4.37 40.  Adrian also was the top performer at the 20 yard shuttle at 4.03 and the 60 yard shuttle at 11.33.  He’d be selected in the 5th round of the 2015 draft by the Chicago Bears.  He ended up turning heads in camp and starting every game his rookie year, as Adrian finished with 57 tackles, 1 sack, and 2 pass deflections.  He’s been a nice bright spot in an otherwise bad team.

 

Dunbar, Quinton

Card: Sage 2015
Acquired: 2015, Box Breaker

Quinton Dunbar played his college ball at Florida. While with the Gators he had 111 receptions for 1500 yards and 8 TDs.  He didn’t attract much attention in the 2015 draft, Dunbar signed with the Washington Redskins as a free agent.  He made it all the way through camp but was released during final cutdowns. The team brought him back immediately and placed him on the practice squad.  The Redskins were thin at cornerback so they brought Quinton up to speed and and dropped him in the lineup.  He got in some playtime near the end of the season, and recorded his first interception in late November.  Dunbar finished his 2015 season with 14 tackles, 5 pass deflections, and an interception.

It appears that the Redskins feel they’ve landed quite an athlete in Dunbar, evidenced by his 2016 performance. In week 3 against the New York Giants, Dunbar intercepted his first pass, and then later caught a 31 yard pass on a fake punt.  He finished the season with a respectable 39 tackles, 10 pass deflections, and 2 interceptions.

Playing for the Crimson Tide during his college career, Amari Cooper posted impressive numbers, including leading the nation in receptions with 124 catches in 14 games (2014).  After the year, he’d earn the Fred Biletnikoff award given nationally to the best college receiver in the nation and be a unanimous All-American.

Amari was taken with the 4th pick of the 2015 NFL draft by the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders were rebuilding on the offensive side of the ball and were trying to surround young quarterback Derek Carr with offensive weaponry.  Cooper connected immediately with Carr and finished his rookie season with 72 receptions for 1070 yards and 6 touchdowns. He’d also chip in returning 8 punts for 41 yards. Arguably Cooper’s best game came in a 37-29 win over the Chargers in which he had 5 receptions for 133 yards and a TD.  After the season Amari was selected as a Pro Bowl Alternate.
