2014 NFL Mock Draft: Seahawks draft big target for Russell Wilson

With the possibility of tight end Zach Miller being released, some experts have said that the Seahawks need to draft another tight end to take his place.

Seattle is in need of an offensive lineman and a wide receiver, so why not kill two birds with one stone and draft a big tight end who can serve as a target for Russell Wilson and protection for Marshawn Lynch?

Amaro could end up being exactly what the Seahawks need out of a first round pick.

At 6-foot-5, 265 pounds, he could serve as a big target in the middle of the field for Russell Wilson and he could also serve as a run blocker for Marshawn Lynch.

At the NFL Combine, he showed that he is built like a big receiver with great hands and arms that span 34 inches.

He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.74 seconds and is tough to bring down because of his size. In his junior season at Texas Tech, he recorded 106 receptions for 1,352 yards and seven touchdowns.

Here are some highlights of the big tight end in action:
