04/15/14 - Five players who should be on the Patriots' draft radar: TE Jace Amaro, Texas Tech: The combination of Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski was a dangerous duo the past few years and forced defenses to prepare for two dynamic options at the tight end position. But with Hernandez behind bars and Gronkowski working his way back from a serious knee injury, tight end is high on the Patriots wish list. While Eric Ebron will be long gone before New England selects in the first round, the Patriots will likely have Amaro available for them at pick 29, who could step in as the new "move" TE. The Texas Tech star played mostly in the slot for the Red Raiders, but is a developing talent with the ability to help an offense in a lot of ways. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/26/14 - 2014 NFL Draft: Week 2 Pro Day takeaways...Amaro back on pace...After North Carolina's Eric Ebron, who will be the second tight end drafted in May? For most of the draft process, that player was expected to be Texas Tech's Jace Amaro, but after an inconsistent NFL combine performance, that became less clear. He ran a disappointing 4.74 40-yard dash with more drops than expected during the positional drills. But Amaro helped himself on Friday at his on-campus Pro Day, recording a 4.59 and 4.62 (into the wind) in the 40-yard dash with better results catching the ball from former Red Raiders quarterback Seth Doege. With 22 team in attendance, including New York Jets general manager John Idzik, Amaro remains the favorite to be the next tight end drafted after Ebron. The bigger question might be: Will he sneak into the late first round? - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 30. *Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech, 6-5, 260, 4.67, 1-2...A big, fluid athlete, Amaro lined up mostly in the slot and used his thick body to gain position in coverage and used his large, soft hands to attack the ball in the air. He is a balanced route-runner and dangerous after the catch, even if defenders get both hands on him. He set NCAA record for single-season receiving yards by a tight end (1,352) and single-season receiving yards/game by a tight end (104.0). - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
12/31/13 - Quarterback Davis Webb tied the Holiday Bowl record with four touchdown passes, and Texas Tech breezed past 14th-ranked Arizona State 37-23 at Qualcomm Stadium on Monday. The Sun Devils' losing streak in the Holiday Bowl, now sponsored by National University, is up to four. Webb, who threw all four of his scoring passes before halftime, finished 28-for-41 for 403 yards. The other quarterbacks who threw four touchdown tosses in a Holiday Bowl were BYU's Jim McMahon (1980), Kansas State's Brian Kavanagh (1995) and Texas' Major Applewhite (2001).
Red Raiders wide receiver Jakeem Grant made six receptions for 89 yards and two touchdowns. Texas Tech tight end Jace Amaro finished with eight catches for 112 yards. Texas Tech (8-5) scored on four of its first five possessions en route to snapping a five-game losing streak. The Red Raiders stymied Arizona State, which was averaging 41 points a game, in the final two quarters after building a 27-13 halftime lead. Arizona State (10-4) fell short in its bid to win 11 games for the first time since 1966. The Sun Devils lost to Stanford in the Pac-12 title game. - The Sports Xchange
