Stephen Hill certainly has high expectations.
The New York Jets' speedy second-round pick out of Georgia Tech says Saturday that he modeled his game after Denver's Demaryius Thomas, also a former Yellow Jackets star, but agreed with comparisons to Calvin Johnson, and ''if I could go old school: Jerry Rice.'' That came a day after Joey Clinkscales, the Jets' vice president of college scouting, loosely compared Hill's size, speed and height to that of Johnson.
The 6-foot-4, 215-pound Hill is expected to step into a starting role opposite Santonio Holmes. He says he worked out during the last few months in Bradenton, Fla., with a number of quarterbacks, including former Jets star Vinny Testaverde.
Hill says he has already spoken to Mark Sanchez about the Jets' offense and playbook.
