The accolades continue to roll in for former Penn State Football standouts in the NFL

Two former Penn State Football standouts were named to Pro Football Focus’ 2020 All-Pro Team this week.

Green Bay Packers’ Adrian Amos was named PFF’s first-team All-Pro safety, while Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson was the outlet’s second-team flex choice.

Amos had the most productive season of his career, finishing the season with 83 total tackles, a career-high two sacks, and tied a career-high with two interceptions.

Of Amos, PFF wrote:

"A late-season run including an outstanding turnover in Week 17 catapulted Amos into the All-Pro team after being some way shy at the three-quarter point. Amos ended the season with a career-high PFF coverage grade of 90 and had seven pass breakups ot go with two interceptions and a forced fumble and fumble recovery."

Meanwhile, Robinson solidified his place as one of the most dangerous receivers in the game, despite shoddy and inconsistent play from Bears quarterbacks Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles this season.

Robinson hauled in a career-high 102 receptions for 1,250 yards and six touchdowns. Bears quarterbacks had a 90.1 passer rating when targeting Robinson, and he was only charged with one drop in 150 targets.

Due to be a free agent this spring, Robinson has the chance to become among the highest-paid players at his position.

Amos and the Packers host the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Divisional Playoffs this weekend. Robinson’s season came to an end with the Bears’ 21-9 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Sunday afternoon’s NFC Wild Card Game.
