There was no doubt the Jets would take a receiver in the draft to bolster a thin receiver corps. Plaxico Burress’ failure as a Jet was not surprising, with age and time away from the game catching up to him.

At 6-5, 200 pounds, Hill can excel on the outside and go vertical. He will see playing time right away, as the team will need him to help stretch the field and keep defenses honest for the ground-and-pound attack the Jets will run. He has the ability to go vertical and fight for the ball and win those battles. 

Like any other player taken after the second round he has parts of his game he has to work on. Hill lacks concentration at times and will need to learn to run tighter routs as well as bulking up to fill his body out to survive the hits he will take.

The Jets are a run-first team now and that makes Hill a late-round pick, as Santonio Holmes and TE Dustin Keller are QB Mark Sanchez’s go-to receivers at this point. Hill warrants a pickup in dynasty leagues as well.
