Major League Baseball prospect who is a naturally fluid athlete. Amaya offers versatility since he played FS, SS, CB and special teams in college. Although he has good straight-line speed, he lacks the hip fluidity to mirror quicker receivers in man coverage. He only had seven interceptions in his college career and has not shown the ability to jump routes in zone and make interceptions. Only put up eight reps on the bench at the Combine, indicating he lacks the strength to be a factor in run support at the next level against stronger runners and blockers. Despite his limited strength, he is an aggressive kid who does not shy away from contact and should be able to contribute on special teams at the next level. Amaya projects as a free-agent prospect, but a team could take a chance on him in the later rounds due to his versatility.
