This is a guy whom the Giants should lock up for years to come. Jason Pierre-Paul, the second-year defensive end out of South Florida, backs up two of the best defensive ends in the NFL in Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck. However, Pierre-Paul has already begun to make a name for himself.
Tuck and Umenyiora have both missed time this year because of injury, but Pierre-Paul has completely filled the void in the Giants' pass rush. Pierre-Paul has recorded 35 tackles, 9.5 sacks, a forced fumble and four pass deflections already this season.
His freakish athleticism is a huge factor in his game, and he resembles a poor man's Julius Peppers with his ability to completely disrupt a play and do everything from stuff running backs to deflect passes.
Not only is Jason Pierre-Paul making everyone forget about the lack of Justin Tuck for most of the season, but he is also proving that he is up to par with some of the best defensive ends in the league, ranking third in the league in sacks and second among defensive ends.
Jason Pierre-Paul is showing exactly why he was a first round draft pick, and he could be one of the league's best defensive ends in a few years.
