Breakout year…New York Jets

In the final of a series, for the second straight year, I will pick a player from each AFCE team. This is the player I think has a breakout year; a year that makes people take notice. Today we look at the New York Jets.

The Jets need breakout type of years from a few players, in order to get back to respectability. If Geno had a breakout year, this team would be the anti-Patriots in the division and make the playoffs, but will he be?

Second year SS Calvin Pryor is poised to emerge in 2015. In year one, Rex with limited DBs, asked the kid to move to the FS position. One, he had never played. Pryor is a hitter, one that likes to come up to the line of scrimmage and hit RBs as they try to get free. He likes to attack the QB. Calvin has all the tools necessary to be a LB, except he is faster, lighter, and a lot quicker.

With the addition of FS Marcus Gilchrist, new HC Todd Bowles has moved Calvin back to his natural position. Bowles loves to attack with his safeties, and Calvin will flourish.

Pryor will allow Gilchrist freedom to roam, his strong acceleration in pursuit, will keep RB and short yardage receivers under control.

Strengths:

Good speed and acceleration

Solid athlete

Quick change of direction

Excellent tackler

Intelligent

Outstanding instincts

Attacks the line of scrimmage with high aggression

Weaknesses:

Below average height and length

Reckless

Over-pursuit because of his obsession to hit

When the year is all said and done, Calvin Pryor will be a key member of that DB group.
