Stephen Hill was picked by the Jets in the second round of the 2012 NFL draft. He will be used as a receiver in the Jets offense.
At 6'4" and 215 pounds, he should be a good addition to the roster. Hill is as athletic as they come. At the NFL Scouting Combine, he ran a 4.3-second 40-yard dash. He will give the Jets more speed and agility that they need.
Hill is a former Georgie Tech wide receiver, and despite making only 49 catches, he did manage to average 25.5 yards per catch.
What does that say about this guy?
He can run—and he can run fast. Hill can position himself on the field in order to make himself available for receptions.
"When you evaluate him on tape, he’s probably going to get the highest grade possible as a blocker," said NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock (via Yahoo! Sports). "Then you look at him: height, weight and speed [he’ll have the] highest grade possible. Then you go hands — a little inconsistent at times, but still you can see that he’s a natural hands catcher."
We'll just have to wait and see what Hill can accomplish in the NFL.
However, if he can provide a positive contribution to the roster, Sanchez will find himself with another wide receiver that's capable of running the distance to make big plays.
