I thought it might be fun to look back a few years and see what kind of prospects the Jets' draftees were when they were entering college.
All rankings are from Rivals.com.
|Name||Stars (1-5)||National Ranking||Position Ranking||State Ranking|
|Calvin Pryor||3||N/A||31||88 (Florida)|
|Jace Amaro||4||52||3||6 (Texas)|
|Shaquelle Evans||4||160||24||17 (California)|
|Quincy Enunwa||3||N/A||63||81 (California)|
|Tajh Boyd||4||51||4||3 (Virginia)|
These ratings are years old so they offer little outside of a look back at the past of Jets prospects. Pryor was lightly regarded heading into college and turned himself into a player. In Boyd you have the case of a player who was thought to be a top tier recruit. Even though he was as good as advertised in Clemson, he was not viewed as a great NFL prospect.
