As of the night before camp opened, the New York Giants have signed every one of their draft picks.

Jason Pierre-Paul signed a five-year, $20.05 million deal with 11.6 million guaranteed to go along with Linval Joseph who signed earlier in the evening to a four-year, $4.2 million deal with $2.7 million guaranteed.

This is great news for the Giants as they will have all of their draft picks in uniform ready to go as camp gets underway today.

Pierre-Paul (or JPP as I will now refer to him as) is a pass rushing specialist with enormous potential, but few believe he will see the field that often with three proven defensive ends in front of him.

Make no mistake, JPP should see at least some action, especially on third downs, but it makes sense for the Giants to ease him into the lineup considering he only played one year of Division I college ball, so he is still very raw.

The worst thing the Giants could do is rush him out there with poor fundamentals and let him develop poor habits. Those are hard habits to overcome.
