I hated Stephen Hill before the draft. You can go to Patsfans.com and see I was adamant against the Pats taking him. He might actually be better suited for the Jets' offense espcially if Tebow is going to get 20 plays a game. Hill will definitely benefit from a simplified option offense early in his career. The question will be if he can learn the route tree and how to read defenses presnap to make adjustments on routes. If he does, he could be a force. The problem is not every WR can learn these things.
I think Jones will be a better fit for a Patriots' style of defense than others because they run so many looks and Jones is versatile. He is also still raw and probably be limited to subpackages early in his career. He like Coples has tons of upside, but different question marks.
I agree Hightower is probably the better pick at least early because he can line up anywhere. He has a motor to boot.
Hightower's a starter from day 1. He should be.
Jones is undersized. He's going to get eaten up 1 on 1, BUT we all know BB is smarter than putting him in positions to fail.
We're going to find out. Damn those pesky Patriots!
