Calvin Pryor was the first safety picked in the the 2014 NFL Draft. The New York Jets selected the former Louisville Cardinal at the No.18 pick overall.
Pryor is a hard hitter and gets to the ball quickly. He had 75 total tackles last season for Louisville, as well as three interceptions.
NFL.com says of Pryor:
Carries a swagger and plays with confidence. Runs the alley and throws his weight around. Physical, lights-out hitter (see second defensive snap of UCF game). Made a highlight-reel, one-handed INT in the same game. Instinctive and aggressive. Defensive tempo-setter. Good pre-snap recognition makes adjustments. Can leverage the field off the hash and cover ground. Good zone recognition. Rangy enough to play center field.
Pryor had to work hard in the off season to get attention, in the end the 5’11″, 210 lbs. “Louisville Slugger” will fit in great in the NFL.
