05/12/14 - Jets eschew drama, take a safety...Pryor said he had a good feeling the Jets would draft him after a pre-draft visit in which he hit it off with Ryan. "I fit into their scheme pretty well," Pryor said. "[Ryan said] He'd love for me to be a New York Jet. E I felt very confident that they were going to take me." While the Jets needed an anchor at safety, the selection of Pryor over a cornerback came as a mild surprise. The Jets cut Antonio Cromartie in March and currently have oft-maligned second-year player Dee Milliner and journeyman Dmitri Patterson atop their depth chart. It is likely the Jets will use at least one of their 11 remaining picks on a cornerback. But on Thursday night, there was little doubt they landed the player they wanted. "We evaluate the player's talents regardless of position," Ryan said. "Clearly, this young man, we think is special." - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - Jets eschew drama, take a safety...In three seasons at Louisville, Pryor recorded seven interceptions, forced nine fumbles and racked up 218 tackles. As a junior in 2013, he knocked an opposing player out of a game in three consecutive weeks. "In viewing his tape, when he gets the impact hits, they aren't illegal hits," Idzik said. "They're just hard hits. We like having that style of play on our side." Pryor said all the right things Thursday night about fitting in with the Jets D "My main thing is just going in there and being a great teammate and making the New York Jets' roster" D but he should provide an immediate upgrade at a position the Jets have addressed with band-aids for most of the Ryan era.

Dawan Landry, who turned 31 at the end of last season, is solid, but third-year pro Antonio Allen's transition from linebacker has had more valleys than peaks. He lost his starting job for several weeks last fall to 35-year-old Ed Reed, whom the Jets signed off the street. Pryor's coverage and tackling skills will also be a big help to a secondary that was ravaged by elite tight ends last season. Tony Gonzalez, Heath Miller, Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Charles Clay and Greg Olsen combined for 49 catches for 622 yards over six games. "You take all the attributes D his cover skills and believe me there is a huge thing with his hitting ability," Ryan said. "Big hits are going to win games and they'll flip the momentum of a game faster than anything, in my opinion. I've always said that. And this young man will provide it." - The Sports Xchange

05/12/14 - Jets eschew drama, take a safety...Any doubt that the circus has left Florham Park disappeared shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday, when the New York Jets waded gently into the draft waters instead of delivering a cannonball that would sent waves cascading throughout the NFL. The Jets passed on quarterback Johnny Manziel -- the most polarizing player in this year's draft -- with the 18th pick and instead took Louisville safety Calvin Pryor. Drafting Manziel and adding him to an already potentially combustible quarterback competition with incumbent Geno Smith and free agent signee Michael Vick might have been something the Jets would have done two or three years ago, when they seemed as interested in making headlines as winning games.

But with no-nonsense general manager John Idzik clearly in charge, the Jets efficiently addressed an obvious need D albeit not the need most observers thought the Jets would tackle on Thursday D by selecting Pryor. "We won't get into who was a consideration," Idzik said when asked whether or not the Jets pondered Manziel. "Suffice to say we stuck to our philosophy. We stuck to our board. And Calvin was our guy." Idzik and head coach Rex Ryan said they were impressed with Pryor's complete game and in particular his reputation as one of the hardest hitters in the draft. - The Sports Xchange

05/12/14 - Call it the Rex Ryan effect. In selecting Calvin Pryor in the first round, the Jets used their first pick on a defensive player for the fifth straight season. It is the first time in team history the Jets have used their first-round pick on the same side of the ball in five consecutive seasons. Another team that's picked a defensive player with its first pick in each of the last five seasons? The Baltimore Ravens, where Ryan served as defensive coordinator before taking over as the Jets' head coach following the 2008 season. - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Jets' picks: Round 1/18 -- Calvin Pryor, FS, 5-11, 207, Louisville...Pryor instantly upgrades a position that has often been ignored under head coach Rex Ryan. Pryor arrives with a reputation as the hardest hitter in the draft -- he knocked a player out of a game in three straight weeks last year and forced nine fumbles in three seasons at Louisville -- and should help improve a back end of a secondary that has been vaporized in recent seasons by running backs in space as well as tight ends. - The Sports Xchange
