"Amen grew up in Houston and moved to Canada so he kind of got off the radar in the United States, which was good for us. Watching his junior tape, I was intrigued by the space they had to cover in Canada. Then when we got him to camp last summer, I was impressed with how his body is changing. He’s probably in the 215 range. He’s going t o fill out and get stronger. He’s another one who tackles well. He doesn’t miss a lot of tackles. He has a grasp of defensive schemes. He’s very instinctive. I think he’s a rare find."
