The NFL draft is upon us and Penn State is expecting to have a good number of players get some life-changing phone calls during the course of the three-day event. And naturally, a number of former Nittany Lions are looking to see if their NFL teams will be plucking some talent out of Happy Valley to be part of the future.

Among those wondering if a Penn State player will be joining him by way of the draft is Adrian Amos, with the Green Bay Packers. Amos could use a few more members of the Penn State family joining him in Green Bay. As of now, Amos is one of two Penn State players on the roster. Center Michael Menet is also on the roster. Menet was signed by the Packers in January but was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals late in the 2021 NFL draft.

Amos was drafted in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL draft by the Chicago Bears, but he joined the Packers after the 2018 season.

The Packers have drafted 12 Penn State players since 1949. The most recent Penn State player drafted by the Packers was tight end Andrew Quarless with a fifth-round pick in 2010. The last player before that drafted by the Packers out of Penn State was defensive back Bhawoh Jue in 2001 (third round). With that being the case, the odds would seem to suggests the Packers may not be drafting a Penn State player this weekend, but a handful of players would appear to be some good fits on the Packers roster.

Amos, like the rest of us, will just have to watch and find out who will be joining him in Green Bay.
