As we count down the 30 days until the NFL draft begins, the Baltimore Ravens blog will take a look at 30 names to remember:
Position: Tight end
School: Texas Tech
Height/weight: 6-5, 265
Round projection: Second or third
File this away: Amaro set FBS all-time record with 1,352 yards for a tight end.
Good: Amaro shows a good burst off the line for his size. He is more of a receiver than a tight end, lining up in the slot for 90 percent of his snaps. Amaro is a playmaker who consistently turns short passes into long gains because of the yards he generates after the catch.
Bad: He has extremely small hands for a tight end, and he doesn't excel at catching passes over the middle. There is a question about his character after he was thrown out of a bowl game for throwing a punch. He's a below-average blocker.
Bottom line: The Ravens could still use a young tight end because Owen Daniels is signed for only one year. But there are too many other bigger needs for the Ravens to use a second-round pick on Amaro. While I don't see him falling into the third round, he would be on their radar if he did unexpectedly slide.
