He may have more money at stake running at the combine than anybody else. The concern about him coming into the year was that his (impressive) INT numbers obscured a general lack of speed, which is something highlighted and underscored by his very poor performance against Tennessee.
Remember when we had Malcom Jenkins in the top 5, and then he ran a 4.5 at the combine, and was moved to safety after one year, and it's not like he's the kind of safety you would take #14 overall either (compare, say, Earl Thomas.) No one would be surprised to see Amerson follow that kind of career trajectory.
But if he runs well, a lot will be forgiven.
