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.
Amaro, who entered the draft after his junior season at Texas Tech, was the third tight end drafted in the 2014 draft following North Carolina's Eric Ebron, who was selected tenth by Detroit and Washington's Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who was picked 38th by the Redskins.
