Texas Tech All-American tight end Jace Amaro was selected by the New York Jets with the No. 49 pick of the 2014 NFL Draft on Friday night.
Amaro tweeted out shortly after being picked "Jets nation, I won't let you down. #JETS"
At 6-foot-5, 270 pounds Amaro is a physical specimen who finished with 106 catches for 1,352 yards (a NCAA single-season record for receiving yards by a tight end) and seven touchdowns.
