The Jets have made a lot of changes going into 2012. The mantra of “one step faster”, has been applied in force to the defense, but don’t forget about the offense. A key addition to this concept was the drafting of Stephen Hill from Georgia Tech in the second round.

Stephen Hill will not only be a major addition, he will be a major contributor, and surpass Plaxico Burress’ total of 8 TDs. He will do it as a rookie.

First of all, he is a burner. 4.36 in the forty yard dash leaves no doubt about that. He catches the ball, he has elite, breakaway speed. When Stephen Hill gets his hands on the football, it is never out of the realm of possibility that he will go the distance. He has the speed to take it to the house on any play.

This theory played out in college if you look at his stats. In Hill’s senior year, he caught 28 passes, 5 for TDs, which is almost an 18% TD percentage. For his college career, Stephen scored TDs at a 23% rate. Jerry Rice only scored at a 13% rate. Obviously we are comparing college to a great pro career, but still, Hill finds the end zone. This much is true.
