The Jets gave their fans something to smile about tonight, with the choices of Stephen Hill and Demario Davis. Here are some reactions around the web.
Pick Grade: B
The Jets get a really athletically impressive kid to be their big receiver, and he joins one of the craziest franchises in the NFL. I hope he translates his athletic ability on to the field because I really like him, but he is super raw.
Pick Grade: B+
Davis is pretty raw, but he’s got great athletic ability and can potentially be a starting linebacker for the Jets eventually. I’ll have a more in-depth analysis of this pick later. Great speed at the linebacker position.
The Jets needed to find another big play threat on offense and in my mind, they got the draft’s top size/speed combo. Hill is a developing route runner, but he’s explosive down the field, can track the football and could mature into the best receiver to come out of this draft class.

NFL Floor: Inconsistent vertical threat
Davis is a thumper who can play the ILB spot for the Jets defense and be that downhill type player. He’s got some natural pop to his game, plus he can also change directions, range and defend the pass. Another talented piece to improve the Jets defense.
NFL Ceiling: Above-average NFL starter
NFL Floor: Solid NFL starter
