The New York Jets saw something they liked on Friday and bounced to get it. The Jets traded their second (No. 47 overall), fifth (154) and seventh-round (232) picks to the Seattle Seahawks to snag Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill with the No. 42nd overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Hill, a 6-foot-5, 206-pound prospect, is a duel-threat when it comes to height and speed. Hill runs the 40-yard dash in 4.30 seconds and has the ability to jump-up and get the ball. The criticsim of Hill is that he needs to develop as a route-runner, as he played in the Yellow Jackets triple-option offense -- and a pass-catcher, but, overall, he fills a big need for the Jets, who do not have a big wide-out target for quarterback Mark Sanchez.
