Rex has got to love this prospect Dan Leberfeld

Louisville safety Calvin Pryor might be the hardest-hitting defensive back in the draft.

He’s a very intimidating player.

If he’s available at 18, Rex Ryan could lobby for this heat-seeking missile in the Jets’ war room.

“I have Calvin Pryor as my 15th overall player,” said former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah, now with the NFL Network. “I just love Pryor. I love the physical way he plays the game, and I thought he was plenty capable of making plays as the high safety, as well. He’s got seven career interceptions, gets his hands on footballs.

“I just like his ability to come down, force the run. He’s like playing with an extra linebacker. I just like those physical players. I think they provide an element to your defense that’s tough to find.”
