While Mehta adds that Amaro didn't look especially sharp Wednesday, the rookie tight end has plenty of time to turn things around, with an eye toward pushing returnee Jeff Cumberland for targets in the Jets' offense.
Amaro (knee) did not participate in team drills during Tuesday's practice, the New York Daily News reports.

The Jets selected Amaro in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, 49th overall.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Amaro lacks great speed, but he's a refined receiver and boasts a big catch radius at 6-foot-5, 265 pounds with 34-inch arms. He caught 106 passes for Texas Tech last year and might immediately be the second-best red-zone target for the Jets behind Eric Decker. Amaro's game is fairly reminiscent of Jason Witten's.
Amaro ran the 40-yard dash in 4.74 seconds at the NFL Combine.

Amaro, a tight end from Texas Tech, will enter the 2014 NFL Draft, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The consensus for many NFL Draft observers is that North Carolina's Eric Ebron will be the first tight end selected, but we suspect Amaro will be the first one off the board. Both players should test very well in timed drills and workouts, and Ebron is more proven as a blocker, but Amaro's upside as a receiver gives him a chance to be fairly special. Amaro appears to possess the length, strength and demeanor necessary to develop as a blocker if a team wants to use him that way, however. Primarily working as a slot wideout in the Texas Tech offense, Amaro showed excellent athleticism and reliable hands as he caught 106 passes for 1,352 yards and seven touchdowns in 13 games this year. The touchdowns tied for second-most on the team, while the receptions and yardage led the team by significant margins. The yardage was also the most ever by a tight end in a single season. If Amaro runs better than 4.60-second 40-yard dash, an appearance within the first 15 picks could be within reach. A team like Atlanta (six), Buffalo (nine), Detroit (10) or the Giants (12) could use him. We think Amaro compares favorably to a young Jeremy Shockey.
