What scouts are saying:
"Amaro is a big, fluid athlete who uses his thick body to gain proper positioning in coverage and uses his large, soft mitts to attack the ball in the air. He is a balanced route-runner and collects himself when changing direction with smooth moves to create separation. Amaro is dangerous after the catch and isn't an easy ballcarrier to bring down, running with power and toughness." (CBSSports.com)
" Excellent size with a well-proportioned frame and room for added bulk. Releases cleanly into routes. Moves like an oversized receiver. Good balance. Enough foot speed to stretch the seam. Good hands to extend and catch. Gives effort as a move blocker and can block out defensive backs. Flashes nastiness. Historic one-year production." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)
"Amaro is quicker than he is fast and is a good route-runner. He is skilled at burning defenses down the middle of the field. Amaro is too quick for most linebackers and too big for safeties to cover effectively. He also has excellent body control with generally reliable hands." (Walter Football)
