2016

2015

Selected in the second round of last yearís draft, Amaro faced a challenging transition coming from pass-happy Texas Tech to the Jetsí ground-heavy offense last season. Nonetheless, he finished his rookie campaign with 38 catches (on 53 targets) for 345 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games played. Although that production is hardly spectacular, the towering 6-5, 265-pound target showed promise along the way, and actually tied for second on the Jets in receptions. With a year under his belt, Amaro should start at tight end this season and could become a nice sleeper pickup in deeper leagues.

2014

The Jets drafted Amaro in the second round this year after he set an FBS record for most receiving yards by a tight end with 1,352 last season at Texas Tech. At 6-5, 260, Amaro is big and strong (28 bench press reps at the Combine) and has a long reach with 34-inch arms. While he doesn't have elite speed for the position, he moves well for his size (4.74 40) and is dangerous after the catch. He rarely played in a three-point stance in college, however, usually lining up in the slot. The Jets will use him as an oversized receiver in the slot, too, but Amaro will must learn to run routes as an in-line tight end. He also must improve his blocking to stay on the field. Jeff Cumberland is the No. 1 tight end entering training camp, but Amaro should challenge him for the job. Even if he doesn't start, Amaro will be used in two-TE sets with Cumberland and should see a decent number of targets as the Jets look to improve what was the league's second-worst passing offense last season.
