With the 29th pick in the NFL Draft, the New England Patriots select…

Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech

Selection made by Cyrus Geller, Musket Fire

Here is the analysis on the selection:

The Patriots have no one other than Rob Gronkowski to take advantage of mismatches in the middle of the defense, which is why Amaro is the pick here. He has the talent to become one of the best young matchup nightmares in the NFL, and when you pair him with Gronk, I think we may see New England return to the dominant passing attack that we know they are capablae of. In addition to this, Gronk is coming off of ACL surgery, making his presence on the field no guarantee. Amaro would be a good insurance plan for big number 87.
