The New York Jets selected Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech in the 2nd round. He was the player most wanted because he is just what the team needs, a tight end that creates and capitalizes on mismatches. Amaro owning the middle of the field will help Geno Smith and the wide receivers. Here is the reaction from the Twitterverse:
Safety AND a TE?! PINCH ME!!!!

Hysterical watching people freak out about trading up for the #Jets, just to see them land a guy many wanted at 18 and fill a major need

We won’t know how great these picks are til they play but damn I’m optimistic on these players. Safety & TE were gaping holes in the roster — Steve (@SteveP_201) May 10, 2014

The reaction has been unanimously positive with those who were getting impatient with Idzik realizing that he knows what he is doing when it comes to valuing prospects. This was a player that was mocked at pick 18 and the Jets were able to catch his fall at pick 49. The Jets are now set up to go WR, OL or any other best player available because of this pick.
