There is no better way to make an NFL team’s roster as an unproven player than by standing out in special teams.

The fourth-round NFL Draft pick out of Oregon made arguably the most-impressive special teams play of the season.

Amadi has continued to impress on special teams tonight, too.
As gunner facing double-team, Ugo Amadi was the first one down on that last punt, as well.
