Again, I know it’s early to start scouting draftees, but with all of the talk around this guy, we should take a look at him, so that is what we are going to do. Tonight we are going to take a look at Texas Tech TE Jace Amaro.
Let’s start by going to the video tape for some highlights:
This player stands at 6’5″, excellent for a tight end, and weighs 260 pounds. Here are his stats while in college:
Receiving & Rushing
|2011||Texas Tech||Big 12||TE||12||7||57||8.1||2||7||57||8.1||2|
|*2012||Texas Tech||Big 12||TE||7||25||409||16.4||4||25||409||16.4||4|
|*2013||Texas Tech||Big 12||JR||TE||13||106||1352||12.8||7||106||1352||12.8||7|
PROS: As we said earlier, his size is one of his biggest strengths. He also has a clear nose for the end zone. He has terrific game speed, can get away from anyone. Jace has good feet, can control them near the sidelines. He also runs a great pass route, and doesn’t drop passes.
CONS: I am stretching now, but based on how he played, coming out early might not have been the best idea. He has only had one good year on offense. Being only a junior, he might have been better suited staying in school and building on the year that he had. He’s a decent run blocker, but that could stand so improvement.
Bottom line, it’s early. Other choices are going to become available. But, being they are at #18, and Jace Amaro might be available at #18. The Jets would do fine if they choose Amaro.
