The Jets have been very interested in Jace Amaro for awhile now, and rightly so, as Amaro is one of the most talented tight end prospects in this year's draft class.
Amaro is coming off of one of the best receiving seasons for a tight end in NCAA history.
In 2013, he recorded an incredible 106 catches, 1,352 yards and seven touchdowns.
And while Amaro will probably never put up those stats at the NFL-level, he projects as a Pro Bowl-caliber player in the NFL.
The Texas Tech product possesses tremendous size, above-average athleticism, great hands and smooth route-running ability.
If the Jets miss out on Ebron in the first round, Amaro would be a phenomenal consolation prize in the second.
If New York opts not to take a wide receiver in the first round, Jordan Matthews would be the ideal second-round selection.
Matthews was one of the most productive wideouts in Vanderbilt's history, as he recorded a combined 208 receptions, 2,800 yards and 15 touchdowns in his junior and senior seasons.
And while Matthews lacks the elite speed to create separation, he's a reliable route-runner with great hands and surprising strength.
The Alabama native would serve as a terrific No. 2 receiver opposite Eric Decker on the outside, and there's no reason he shouldn't make an immediate impact in New York's offense.
