Nice signing by Maccagnan right before camp

Wide receiver Austin Hill has quietly had a very good training camp.

The University of Arizona product, who signed with the Jets right before camp started, has consistently produced in practices this summer.

#16 runs good routes, rarely drops the ball and has excellent size (6-3, 212).

Watching him this summer, he looks like a second round-type prospect.

And he was probably on his way to being picked pretty high until he blew out his knee in 2013.

In 2012, he was second in the Pac-12 with 1,364 receiving yards and was a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award. He finished that season with 81 catches and 11 touchdowns. Hill had an 11 catches against Stanford and 10 for 259 yards against #10 USC.

When he came back to action in 2014, he was solid, but not great, with 49 catches and four touchdowns.

So often players get back to their old self two years after a knee injury, and it looks like Hill is rounding back into his 2012 form.

It could be hard for Hill to make the Jets’ regular roster with a crowded field at the receiver position, but he could make a real nice practice squad player for them in 2015.

This guy clearly has a lot of ability
