Calvin Pryor, SS
Pryor is the third first-round selection on this list. He’s the second first-round pick who disappointed as a rookie.
It wasn’t his fault.
The combination of Rex Ryan and John Idzik doomed Pryor in 2014. Thanks to the personnel’s extreme soft spot at the safety spot, Pryor was played out of position at the free safety for much of the season. One addition named Marcus Gilchrist changed all of that.
Pryor shifted back to his natural strong safety spot and started to flash signs that earned him the nickname of Louisville Slugger. When he’s roaming the box and in underneath coverage, he’s simply a stud.
Only injuries can now hold back Pryor. Save the injuries, he has Pro Bowl written all over him in 2016.
