Stephen Hill Impresses at Minicamp

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

Reports out of the Jets minicamp indicate Stephen Hill had a strong performance.

The race to be the Jets' No. 2 receiver has a long way to go, but Stephen Hill made a strong impression at minicamp. Not only did Hill perform on the field but he said all the right things in the locker room. He caught a lot of balls and didn’t have a drop. The rest of the picture is pretty murky: None of the three draft picks really stood out positively more than the others. Shaq Evans, back from finishing up a Scandinavian literature class at UCLA, had quite a few passes in his direction hit the ground. David Nelson also got some first-team work.

Minicamp is minicamp. It would be foolish to read too much into this.

I think the good news is the Jets do have other options. It is not going to be simply a case where they have to pray Hill improves and not have a fallback plan. Personally I would have preferred somebody with a proven track record of being a lot better than Hill, but the floor for the second receiver spot is at least higher than it has been the past few years.
