With the chances of Aaron Hernandez returning to the New England Patriots non-existent and the constant health issues of Rob Gronkowski, the team could be in the market for an athletic, pass-catching tight end in this May’s NFL Draft, and in that group, there may be none better than Texas Tech’s Jace Amaro.
Despite, for whatever crazy reason, not being nominated–nor winning for that matter–the Mackey Award nor the Biletknikoff, Amaro was one of the more proficient receiving threats in all of college football in 2013. He caught 106 passes for over 1,300 yards and seven scores.
And again, remember, he’s a tight end.
Well, Amaro revealed that he had an interview with the Patriots on Wednesday evening, and in his mind, things went rather well.
“It was good. They broke my tape down, and it looked like they liked me a lot. They said I fit their system very well, so I guess we’ll see how it goes,” Amaro said. “It’s a hard organization to ignore, what they’ve had with the success at the tight end position. It’s something that I’d like to bring along, to be in a system like that, whatever team it is.”
The thought of Tom Brady throwing passes to Amaro for the next few years to come is a scary thought for not only the AFC East, but the entire NFL that has to deal with them.
