When the New York Jets were on the clock, there were a number of intriguing wide receivers still on the board. The Jets needed to improve their receiving corp despite the addition of Eric Decker in free agency, but the Jets are a team not afraid to go against the grain and they did just that.
Rather than adding a wide receiver, the Jets went with Louisville safety Calvin Pryor, who became the first safety off of the board.
Here is how the fans reacted on Twitter:
Rex Ryan goes defense. Stunning. Calvin Pryor first safety off the board. #Jets
