Biography: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after he led the team in tackles, posting 89/1/9. Junior numbers included 60 tackles and four interceptions.
Positives: Athletic college safety who will get consideration at cornerback in the NFL. Aggressive, works hard to get involved in the action, and flies around the football. Wraps up tackling and always gives effort. Displays good sideline-to-sideline range, quickly gets to the flanks, and remains disciplined in centerfield. Takes good angles to the action and displays solid awareness.
Negatives: Does not consistently play to his forty time, nor does he show great recovery speed. Lacks a sense of timing in pass defense. Slow turning his hips to transition with opponents down the field.
Analysis: Amaya possesses solid size/speed numbers and has the mentality to play at the next level. He has enough skill to get looks as a dime back.
