2014 NFL Draft Prospects: The Rundown

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Well folks, the college season is nearly at an end and it’s time to wrap up my series of NFL Draft prospects that you should know. There are a few players that I left out when the pieces were written that I’d like to highlight now but before I do that, I’d like to link everyone to all my previous pieces so they can be used as a reference for anyone who would like to use them. Especially me.



Nov 16, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Texas Tech Red Raiders tight end Jace Amaro (22) cannot catch a pass while defended by Baylor Bears safety Terrell Burt (13) and defensive back Sam Holl (25) in the second quarter at AT

Jace Amaro – 6’5 260lbs – Texas Tech

Amaro has had an incredible season this year. He is a match up nightmare for any team. Far too big for safeties and far too fast for linebackers, Amaro terrorizes the middle of the field. Amaro had 98 receptions for 1,240 yards and seven touchdowns. He isn’t going to turn scout’s heads with his blocking ability but that can be improved with some NFL coaching and some strength training. What will get scout’s attention is his remarkable speed for his size and reliable hands. Amaro had previously tweeted that he would be returning to Texas Tech for his senior season but word has it that he changed his mind, which is probably for the best. I don’t think that another year could improve his draft stock given how high it is at this time. Look for Amaro to be one of the first three tight ends off the board. He could be the first or he could be the third but will be a first round pick regardless of the order.

    Do we dare roll the dice on another TE? We need one but until we shake the gonzo curse I say find the best WR available and give him a chiefs hat!

    • Jeff Grasser Jr

      With Fasano under contract and Kelce still being an unknown, I’d go with the WR or depending on which DEs/Ts are available, may go with one of them…I’m a Stephon Tuitt fan

    If my favorite nfl team (KC) drafts my favorite rb from my favorite college in my lifetime (Auburn)….well that would seriously be lifelong memorable moment. Yes Bo was better. … but I was a kid during those years. I’ve loved watching Mason since day one, and I can’t remember the last time an Auburn back worked so hard. KC would be very lucky to get him.

    • Jeff Grasser Jr

      We’ll see! I don’t think we’d take him in the 3rd but the rounds after that are pretty wide open

      • Auburn78

        Some mocks have him going as high as the 2nd so I highly doubt we grab him, especially after spending a 3rd on Davis. No we have too many other needs.

    Jace Amaro gets strong consideration from me if he is available when the Chiefs pick. He is a real weapon at TE and the Chiefs need more pass weapons.

      Honestly, I like Eric Ebron more than Amaro…I’d prefer to take him

    Dang just watched some of the Tre Mason highlights, I like the way he runs and catches the ball out of the backfield. I bet he would be fun to watch in an Andy Reid system. I sill think we will be trading out of the 1st round this year in order to get that 2nd round pick back. So many Qb’s this year that someone is going to want to get back into the 1st to pick one up that slid.

    • Jeff Grasser Jr

      Soooo many QBs…It’s crazy how the one year that we had the #1 pick, there were 0 QBs and the next year, there’s 4-5 first rounders
