The wide receiving corps is set for upheaval across the board, but the biggest head-to-head matchup will be between David Nelson and Stephen Hill. The prize has yet to be determined, as either player could be as highly valued as a starter or miss the final roster cut entirely.
Nelson already won the first round, taking Hill's job in the middle of the 2013 season. Nelson appears to be carrying his momentum into the offseason, having already developed a strong chemistry with quarterback Geno Smith, as Jane McManus of ESPNNewYork.com notes.
Meanwhile, Hill has had a strong spring as well, drawing praise from offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who described his play as "excellent."
Where Hill really separates himself from Nelson is his upside. His blend of size and speed in combination with his age (23) give him a lot more room to develop into a potentially dominant player. Nelson has been the more productive player as of late, but he is not nearly as enticing to keep on the bottom of a roster to develop.
There is a chance that both players will find a way onto the roster, but the Jets will look for every excuse to keep their three drafted receivers (and two free agents), and they won't have a problem parting ways with either player if they do not impress this August.
