This season, under new coach Todd Bowles' revamped secondary, Pryor will play closer to the line of scrimmage, allowing him to literally and figuratively make more of an impact, per NJ.com. Prior had no interceptions, forced fumbles or fumble recoveries last season.
"Yes, I feel like I'll be able to make more plays and make things happen for the defense," Pryor said. "I'm not really trying to think back on last year. I'm just trying to look forward and see what happens this year."
Wilkerson has missed the last three games with a toe injury and was a limited participant all week at practice.

The Jets listed the following players as probable:
The Jets are 10 1/2-point underdogs to the Patriots.
Rex Ryan has announced that
"Calvin is going to play," Ryan told NJ.com. "He'll definitely play."
But after serving as a starter most of the year, Pryor has apparently lost that job to Jaiquawn Jarrett, who earned Defensive Player of the Week honors for a performance against the Steelers in which he recorded two interceptions, one fumble recovery and a sack.
Ryan said he expects Jarrett to start against the Bills.
With the Pryor on the bench, Jarrett thrived registering a pair of interceptions, a sack and a fumble recovery in a 20-13 victory.
"It was a coach's decision," Pryor said, according to the New York Post. "We were going to rotate, but Jaiquawn Jarrett had a hell of a game, two interceptions, picked-up fumble. Stay with the hot guy, just keep him out there."
