I am starting to like this kid..... he will be a GREAT receiver. Hopefully it starts now..but the last few games of the season, if the games dont matter and the pressure is off. He will perform. Boost his confidence and next year he will be a pure number one.
Whether or not he becomes a great receiver, you can't blame him for training for the combine. Everyone does it to maximize your draft stock. In fact it's speaks to his character that he now regrets it.
You also can't say that only the Jets would draft a combine star. That's why the players train for the combine, and why they spend millions of dollars to have the combine.
That said. Stephen Hill if he never does get better at catching will still be worth his draft position as a #3 deep threat. He shouldn't be starting right now. If he learns to catch he could become elite, and the steal of the draft.
