Holt assesses new Jaguars receivers

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky
The Jaguars' new veteran receiver, Torry Holt, was asked about the team's three rookie receivers on Thursday.

Holt met with the local media in Jacksonville as the team gets set for its minicamp starting Friday.

When Holt was asked which draft pick was most like him, here's what he said:

Fifth-rounder Jarett Dillard: "The one who's most like me I would say probably would be Dillard. Incredible hands, smooth, does a really good job with his routes. Has an incredible vertical leap, does a really good job with attacking the football."

Fourth-rounder Mike Thomas: "Mike Thomas was real strong, a very good stride, I think he will come in and can help us in the return game as a punt returner and as a kickoff returner. And also give us some depth at the receiver position, too. Put him at the slot but he's also strong and big enough where you can move him and play him outside at the Z or the X."

Seventh-rounder Tiquan Underwood: "Underwood, who played some special teams in college, played receiver there at Rutgers and he played on the other side of Kenny Britt. So he knows how to play. He knows how to play his role obviously, so I thought that they did a really good job with the draft this year."
