STRENGTHS 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.

WEAKNESSES Plays with too much reckless abandon and lacks discipline playing the cutback. Takes some bad angles and can be outflanked to the perimeter. Average production on the ball. Is not asked to play a lot of man coverage. Average leaping ability.

DRAFT PROJECTION Round 1 (top 15)

BOTTOM LINE Perhaps the most explosive hitter in this year's crop of safeties, Pryor is a big, physical hammer in the run game, bringing the ability to intimidate and erase. Factor in his instincts and range and Pryor has the ability to start as a rookie.
Daniel Jeremiah (NFL.com) wrote:
I love the physical way he plays the game, and I thought he was plenty capable of making plays at the high safety, as well. Hes got seven career interceptions, gets his hands on footballs, but I just like his ability to come down, force the run. Hes like playing with an extra linebacker.

Hakeem Smith and Pryor formed one of the best safety tandems in the country in 2013, compiling 69 tackles, including 5.5 for loss, three interceptions and two forced fumbles, on his way to earning 2013 All-American Athletic Conference first-team honors.

Has prototypical size and athleticism for the position and is one of the most well-round safeties in the class with explosive downhill reaction to the run, strong awareness in coverage and versatility to hold his own on the outside or in the slot.

Pryor has elite tools and potential if he can harness his sledgehammer playing style with disciplined intensity.

We finally get the early round safety for Rex to have fun with. Pryor is going to be a playmaker for us.

More defense?
Why not receiver or tight end?
It's a good pick but I would think you would wanna help your offense 1st...

Hits a need for us. He wasn't a reach. But I still think Cooks shoulda been the pick there. Safety Duo of Pryor and AA hopefully will be great for years.

Not even my favorite safety in the draft.

Obviously I defer to Rex and the scouts, but immediate reaction is meh.

As always, though, lets go Pryor.

Welcome to the Jets.

BPA. Our secondary is pretty weak too. We have 12 picks, so there will be plenty of offensive help. I expect a WR and possibly a TE too by the end of the day tomorrow.

I'm really excited about this pick. Although I didn't expect a rex coach team to take a safety. Pryor is fast and aggressive. He is gong to bring some intensity to the back-end of our defense.

He has great range against the run and is really good against the pass.

My thoughts on our pick:

I don't love it like it previously said.

I really think that it could help us out a lot I think Pryor has a shot to be a great player.

Not in love with it however he was in the range on my big board I can't dislike the pick.

Wish we went offense but honestly there is no sense on reaching on an offensive player when we need talent.
