2012 NFL Draft Grades: 'Boom Or Bust' Draft For New York Jets

How did the New York Jets fare in rounds 2 and 3 of the 2012 NFL Draft on Friday night? Only time well tell, of course. All we can do right now is look at the reactions and grades from some the NFL Draft analysts.

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports thought the Jets took a huge risk by selecting Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill in Round 2, 43rd overall. Prisco wrote:

"This is a risk. He is a feast or famine guy. But the Jets needed some speed outside. But the Jets took two risks with their first two picks. Boom or bust draft."

Prisco gave the selection of Demario Davis, an outside linebacker from Arkansas State, in the third round (77th overall) a 'C.'

Pro Football Weekly also sees the risk the Jets took with the Hill selection:

"He's an explosive athlete with unique length, but having played in a simplified, spread-option offense, it will take some time to learn how to diagnose coverages and he must figure out what it means to be a professional to realize his immense potential."

DraftTek likes the choice of Hill:

"Hill has great straight-line speed, strong hands and is probably the top red zone threat in the draft. He'll need some time to refine his route running, but this is a high upside player who could dominate the league in a few years. Grade: A"

DraftTek gave the Davis selection a 'C':

"Davis will be a back up on the inside in the Jets 3-4. Would like to see a guy that'll make more of an impact in the 3rd round. Grade: C"
