During training-camp and the preseason, Hill has not stood out at all. Other receivers on the bubble of making the roster like Greg Salas and Saalim Hakim have had very impressive preseasons. Salas has shown an ability to get open and make plays, while Hakim has been a demon with speed on special teams. Both Salas and Hakim can contribute to the team in week one.
Stephen Hill is a poster boy of the Mike Tannenbaum era. A draft pick with a ton of potential that just never panned out. I wouldn't be surprised if Hill went to another team and succeeded, but New York is not the right place for him. There is no reason Hill should make the 53 man roster for the Jets.
