Jets | Rex Ryan did not want Stephen Hill

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said he was not in favor of selecting WR Stephen Hill with the No. 43 overall pick in the NFL Draft, particularly because Ryan figured Hill would not be able to contribute. "Well, nothing told me he would (contribute)," Ryan said. "Nothing. When I saw the tape (of his collegiate play) I was concerned. But (general manager) Mike Tannenbaum and (senior personnel executive) Terry Brady and all our scouts were adamant about this guy. They were adamant that this guy can do it ... He was the guy they all wanted, but honestly, when it came down to it, a wideout? Not my dream pick. But now that we have him, of course, I want to claim him: 'Oh, that was my pick.' But it really wasn't."
