New York Jets' Fans: Meet Your 2014 NFL Draft Class

The marathon weekend is finally over Jets’ fans. The draft choices have been made, and we can finally move ahead with preparations for the 2014 season. So, let’s meet the draftclass, courtesy of NFL.com:
Round 1, Pick 18 (18) Calvin Pryor FS 5’11” 207 Louisville 6.3

Pick Analysis: “That is a really interesting pick. If you remember Bob Sanders in his prime in Indianapolis, this guy is a bigger Bob Sanders. He is maybe the most fearless defensive back I saw on tape this year. He flies around the field and makes plays. I think he’s a little better on the back end than he gets credit for.” — Mike Mayock
Round 2, Pick 17 (49) Jace Amaro TE 6’5″ 265 Texas Tech 5.5

Pick Analysis: “I like this pick a lot for the Jets as they try to fortify their offensive firepower. He is a physical route runner. He gets into seams very well. Once he catches the ball, he becomes an excellent ball carrier.” — Charles Davis
Round 3, Pick 16 (80) Dexter McDougle CB 5’10” 196 Maryland 5.1
Pick Analysis: “He can run. His stock and trade is speed; he can flat out fly. If you want a guy who can get up and go, this is your guy.” — Charles Davis
Round 4, Pick 4 (104) (From Buccaneers) Jalen Saunders WR 5’9″ 165 Oklahoma 5.2

Pick Analysis: “Saunders weighed in at a hefty 165 pounds at the Senior Bowl. At 165 pounds, he’s one of most physical receivers in football; he ear holes defensive backs. He can play in the slot or on the outside, and he can also play special teams.” — Mike Mayock
Round 4, Pick 15 (115) Shaq Evans WR 6’1″ 213 UCLA 5.4
Pick Analysis: “When you look at what the Jets have done this offseason, they’re trying to give their quarterback some help and give him some weapons to play with.” — Daniel Jeremiah
Round 4, Pick 37 (137) (Compensatory selection) Dakota Dozier OT 6’4″ 313 Furman 5.3

Pick Analysis: “Dozier’s draft stock rose tremendously since early in the 2013 season and continued through a very good performance at the East-West Shrine Game.” — Gil Brandt
Round 5, Pick 14 (154) Jeremiah George ILB 5’11” 234 Iowa St. 5.1
Pick Analysis: “George had a good positional workout (at Iowa State’s pro day), but he’s going to have to get bigger to play linebacker in the NFL. He weighed in six pounds lighter at Iowa State’s pro day than he did at the combine.” — Gil Brandt
Round 6, Pick 19 (195) Brandon Dixon CB 5’11” 203 Northwest Missouri St. 5.2

Round 6, Pick 33 (209) (Compensatory selection) Quincy Enunwa WR 6’2″ 225 Nebraska 5.1
Round 6, Pick 34 (210) (Compensatory selection) IK Enemkpali DE 6’1″ 261 Louisiana Tech 5.0
Pick Analysis: Enemkpali played defensive end at Louisiana Tech, but was put through workouts as a linebacker at his pro day.
Round 6, Pick 37 (213) (Compensatory selection) Tajh Boyd QB 6’1″ 222 Clemson 5.2

Pick Analysis: “I think he brings some important things, including arm talent. At his pro day, he put on a show. He’s as athletic as can be. He reminds me of Troy Smith when he came out of Ohio State. At this point in the draft, to get a guy with that arm talent and athleticism is pretty exciting.” — Mike Mayock
Round 7, Pick 18 (233) Trevor Reilly OLB 6’5″ 245 Utah 5.2
