New York Jets' 1st Round Pick: Reactions From Fans On Twitter

The pick is in! The New York Jets have selected Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville. The pick was a bit surprising considering the players on the board but Pryor is an excellent safety and a great pairing with Antonio Allen. Here are some initial reactions from the Twitterverse:

 

 

 

And then there are reactions from the other side:

 

 

 

The reaction has been mostly positive for the very hard-hitting safety out of Louisville. I liken him to Laron Landry but with much more range and better ball skills. With Pryor and Allen the Jets are set at safety for years to come. This is a deep draft for wide receivers and there are still some good corners available. I would expect the Jets to be able to move around tomorrow, whether to move up in the 2nd round or even add a second 2nd round pick. Pryor is a good start for John Idzik. I personally would have chosen Dennard because he is a lockdown corner in my opinion but Pryor is just fine.
