Mayock’s take: “We’re going to call this kid ‘Thrill Hill’. This kid can jump, he’s fast, he’s long, he’s athletic. I was stunned at how well he got in and out of breaks. But he’s very raw.”
Mayock’s take: “This is an interesting pick, but I think he fits what the Jets are looking for.”
The good: WR Stephen Hill will provide a tall, sure-handed receiver for QB Mark Sanchez and balance across the field from WR Santonio Holmes. The bad: Hill has limited experience coming from an unconventional offense where he had only 49 total receptions and nine touchdowns. The bottom line: The Jets needed a tall, fast target for Sanchez to bolster their passing game, and they got it — if he can adjust quickly.
The good: LB Demario Davis is noted for his speed and his ability to drop into coverage against the run. The bad: Davis is not a pass rusher (seven total college sacks), so the Jets may have to convert him to play on the inside. The bottom line: The Jets needed a linebacker, but whether Davis will fill the bill is a question mark.
