    NY Jets 2014 2nd Round Pick (#49): TE - Jace Amaro - Texas Tech-SIGNED


    JACE AMARO, TE
    SCHOOL: TEXAS TECH | CONFERENCE: BIG12
    COLLEGE EXPERIENCE: JUNIOR | HOMETOWN: SAN ANTONIO, TX
    HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6-5 / 265 LBS.

    STRENGTHS WEAKNESSES

    STRENGTHS: At 6-feet-5, 265 pounds with impressive straight-line speed (4.74 seconds). Lining up mostly in the slot, Amaro is a big, fluid athlete who uses his thick body to gain proper positioning in coverage and uses his large, soft mitts to attack the ball in the air.
    He is a balanced route-runner and collects himself when changing direction with smooth moves to create separation. Amaro is dangerous after the catch and isn't an easy ballcarrier to bring down, running with power and toughness.

    Played more of a slot receiver position in college and projects as a joker tight end at the next level.

    WEAKNESSES: Lacks elite bulk and muscle definition for the position. Shows some ankle and lower body stiffness, lacking elite flexibility. Doesn't have the softest hands and will have some drops off his palms. Allows his pads to get too high in his routes and needs to stay low and show better dip and body balance in his breaks - needs to do a better job hiding his intended path until the final moment.

    Doesn't always play up to his size as a route-runner and can't let defenders knock him from his path.

    Needs to develop a nastier demeanor as a blocker and improve his hand placement - will get caught holding. Room to improve his ball security when fighting for extra yards. Primarily an inside slot receiver in college and wasn't asked to be a consistent inline blocker.

    Some durability concerns after missing six games in 2012 after an upper body injury (grade-3 lacerated spleen) that caused internal bleeding. Needs to keep his emotions in check on the field - ejected from the bowl game in 2012 after punching an opponent. Some minor off-field character concerns after a March 2012 arrest for credit card fraud.

    Great pick. This offense is one more pick away from a total makeover and a huge transformation. 2 off seasons and this team has a whole new culture and is a far cry from the Sanchez Shonn green and Holmes era


    Now trade back in and take ARobinson or DAdams

    I like it, but don't love it personally. We really need a WR now.

    I hate Pete Prisco. I think he gave both of our picks a C this draft so far. Complete BS.

    What? The Jets have killed it in this draft so far. Best safety and the second best TE. Both players should start day 1. What's not to love?
