Marty Mornhinweg on Jets receiver Stephen Hill: 'He has looked just excellent so far'

Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg thinks the Jets' offense is "light years" ahead of where it was at this time last year, and wide receiver Stephen Hill may be one reason why.

Hill was a much-ballyhooed second-round draft choice in 2012. But injuries and some wildly inconsistent play limited his effectiveness in his first two seasons.

 

Last week, Hill said the knee swelling that landed him on injured reserve at the end of last season was all gone. He's been taking part in the Jets' offseason program, and he looked a lot like his old self during organized team activities on Wednesday. (Please don't read to much into that, however: It was one practice on one day in a long offseason. That Hill was present, accounted for, and able to move without grimacing tells you all you need to know about the injury problems that plagued his first two seasons.)

 

Mornhinweg was the Eagles' offensive coordinator at the time the Jets drafted Hill. The Eagles didn't need to select a wideout then, but during a conference call with Jets season-ticket holders Thursday, Mornhinweg said he liked Hill at Georgia Tech because of his size (6-foot-4, 215 pounds) and speed. That said, Mornhinweg admitted Hill was "pretty raw" coming out of college, so he figured it might take some time for Hill to adapt to the pro game.

 

Might that time be now? Maybe.

 

Mornhinweg suggested it's possible, but it is worth noting that it's still only May 29, and the Jets haven't yet practiced in full pads this offseason, let alone had any contact.

 

So take this with a grain of salt, given where we are on the calendar. Just know that Mornhinweg said it in response to a fan's question about Hill and what Mornhinweg sees for him this season.

"He has looked just excellent in these offseason practices so far," Mornhinweg said. "He still has room to progress, so he's got some work. But I've been excited about season thus far up to date in this offseason."

Mornhinweg's homeyness is very endearing. He reminds me of my grandma.

I feel like even outside of football, his solution to every problem in life involves him using some form of shotgun.

Yada yada, whatever. Second or third day of OTA's give me a break. Wait till day five when his "balky" knees act up.

The hero the Jets deserve, but not the one we need right now. 

 

In 2014 the DARK HILL will RISE.

I totally could see the light turning on for Hill.  He was playing well before he got injured.

Last year would've been a great season for him but he couldn't stay healthy.

I believe this year he could leave his stamp on the opposition and demand respect. But hes always hurt thoe!

Hope he has a healthy year

Have you guys ever looked at Vlad Ducasse's combine numbers? When he finally puts it all together, watch out.

There's only so many times we can see the same exact 1 good highlight of Hill last year lol. He needs to stay healthy, don't trust his knees.

Hill is going to benefit from the emergence of one, Geno Smith.

Science!

 

According to my calculations, the additions of Decker, CJ, and Jace Amaro will equal Hill playing a role in the offense and adding to the total sum of said offense in a positive way
