    Strong Points: Speed, quickness and ball skills. Tries to play an aggressive game. Productive in the role Oregon asked him to play. Good man and zone cover guy. Plays with awareness. Will come up to support and is a good tackler. Returned punts in 2018 and has NFL potential as a returner. Effective when used to blitz.

    Weak Points: Short. Is he a corner or a safety? Timed well in Indy, but his agility drills were below average for a defensive back. Not as sudden as what some teams would want.

    The Way We See It: Listed as being a corner, he really played safety and nickel as the Ducks' fifth defensive back. Amadi started games in each of the last three seasons but wasn't a full-time starter. Though he often played deep as a safety in Oregon's scheme, he will most likely line up as a slot corner at the NFL level. He plays with more quickness and suddenness than he showed at the combine. Amadi shows he can get and keep good position in man coverage, and he finds the ball and has good hands. He has a strong pedal and quick burst out of his turn. Amadi may not be ready to step in as a nickel at the NFL level but should be able to do so by Year 2. He can be a contributor on teams until he is ready. With his height, he won't be for every team.
