Oregon defensive back Ugochukwu Amadi is likely a player we’ll be discussing quite a bit as a possible 2019 NFL Draft selection of the Pittsburgh Steelers for the next few weeks as he’s already been linked to the team in a few mock drafts. That will likely continue to happen the next several weeks following Amadi coming to Pittsburgh for a pre-draft visit recently. With our draft profile of Amadi now posted on the site, a few readers are wanting to see more about the plays he made during his college career at Oregon.
In an effort to provide you as much information as possible when it comes to several top players in the 2019 draft class, I am currently putting together as many contextualization posts as I can between now and the end of April and especially when it comes to players who the Steelers might select in the various rounds. In this post, we’ll contextualize the defensive plays made by Amadi during the 2018 season and specifically those that included him registering ether a tackle for loss, a sack, a pass defensed, a hurry, an interception, or a forced fumble. I also included his one punt return touchdown that he had during the 2018 season.
Amadi registered 1.5 total sacks in the 13 games that he played in 2018 at Oregon and 5 total tackles that resulted in lost yardage. He also registered 8 total pass breakups and 3 interceptions to go along with 3 hurries and a forced fumble. I was able to track down all but 3 of these 20 plays that Amadi made in 2018 and they are contextualized for you in the table below and in order. Each play is linked to a video of it on Youtube.
