2012 NFL Draft Results: New York Jets Trade Up, Select Stephen Hill Of Georgia Tech

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.
