Ranking New York Jets Youngsters Poised To Breakout In 2016

4. Jace Amaro, TE

  • 23 Years Old, 6-5, 265 lbs., Round 2 of 2014 NFL Draft (NYJ)
  • 2014: 14 G, 4 GS, 38 CTH, 345 YDS, 2 TD
  • 2015: Did Not Play, Injured
  • Projected 2016: 14 G, 14 GS, 53 CTH, 624 YDS, 7 TD

Don’t be confused or be so quick to forget, Jace Amaro is one bad boy.

This big bodied tight end has all the talent in the world and displayed such talent in the pass happy offense of Texas Tech.

He simply couldn’t display all of his talents as a rookie thanks to a porous offense. The weapons surrounding him were terrible and the quarterback position was below average at best.

At only 23-years old, 2016 could be a very exciting season for Amaro.

Playing in Chan Gailey’s spread offense, he and Quincy Enunwa will act as the dangerous big bodied slot/wing options.

However, Amaro’s breakout will be highly dependent on what happens with Ryan Fitzpatrick. We’ll still hedge our bets that the Harvard product will be back in tow.
