Adrian Amos, S, Penn State, 5th round, 142nd overall
There is plenty of debate in Bears’ circles about just how good Amos is. Some believe he’s an elite safety, some believe he’s a solid safety. He’s becoming a free agent this offseason and nobody know what the ceiling is that the Bears are willing to pay him.
Put that aside because it’s irrelevant here. The bottom line is Ryan Pace found a safety in the fifth round of the draft that became, at worst, a solid starting safety at the NFL level. That is a steal and every GM in the league would sign up for that from their fifth round pick.
While Amos isn’t as good at his position as Eddie Goldman, Amos gets the slight nod in terms of a higher grade because of the value and the expectation of the draft position.
Whether Amos has played his last game in Chicago is irrelevant for this grade, he was an excellent selection by Ryan Pace.
