Jets select talented but raw WR Stephen Hill in 2nd round

The New York Jets attempted to address their need for a true No. 2 wide receiver by trading up to select Georgia Tech wideout Stephen Hill @_StephenHill_ on Friday. In return for the No. 43 pick, the Jets sent pick Nos. 47, 154 and 232 to the Seattle Seahawks. Hill, 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, ran a 4.36-40 at the combine. He also averaged 29.3 yards per catch in Tech's limited passing offense last season.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Jets' VP scouting has already compared Hill to Calvin Johnson. So, you know, no pressure. From a size and speed standpoint, I guess the comparison isn't completely off. But Hill caught just 28 passes last season in the Yellow Jackets' run-heavy system. There are obvious questions about his route knowledge, but Hill certainly has the height to be a red-zone factor right away. But he'll definitely need some time -- like a season or two -- to develop into a consistent fantasy producer.
