Jets solidify secondary with Louisville safety Calvin Pryor

Another target, gone.

Louisville safety Calvin Pryor, who the Bengals showed decent interest in during the predraft process, is heading to New York after the Jets used their No. 18 selection on him.

Pryor is viewed as the top safety prospect in the 2014 NFL draft and first taken off the board. A good player to fit in the Rex Ryan atmosphere, Pryor plays physical against the run but plays a bit reckless -- especially in cuts.

Will be an interesting addition in Ryan's attempt to add talent on a third-ranked defense against the run but 22nd against the pass.
