The New York Jets Select Jace Amaro with the 49th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft


Moving right along, ladies and gentlemen, with the second night of the three-night NFL draft primetime event.

The Jets are up with their second pick over the weekend, with 49th overall on the second round. So, whom did the Jets choose?

JACE AMARO, TE, TEXAS TECH

We, along with everyone else, have been scouting this guy for the draft, right along with Seferian-Jenkins, Ebron, Troy Niklas, and others.

Amaro did a terrific job of setting the world on file with combine performance, leading his position in nearly ever category. This included 28 bench presses, 4.74 seconds in the 40 yard dash, a 118 inch broad jump, and a 33 inch vertical leap.

Here is a reminder of Amaro’s statistical production at Texas Tech:
