I like behind the neck pressing a lot because it helps with mobility and also reinforces the proper overhead position. Although the trick is that if mobility is extremely poor, the bnk pressing can aggravate the shoulders, so sometimes you may not be able to introduce it right away (sometimes doing push presses can get you past this because you don't have to actively push in that lowest position).
