ESPN: 25 UNDER 25
Mel Kiper ranked Giants’ DE Jason Pierre-Paul 13th in a list of ESPN’s 25 best players 25 years old or younger.
” Current: Entering his fourth NFL season, it’s amazing JPP still qualifies for this list. After his breakout 2011 campaign, I think many are surprised he isn’t higher. Sack totals don’t paint a complete picture, but JPP’s fell off from 16.5 in 2011 to 6.5 last season, a decent enough dip to cause an ounce of concern. The interesting thing about Pierre-Paul is he is now one of the best 4-3 defensive ends in the NFL against the run. He has grown from project to steady starter.
Future: Pierre-Paul has become a pretty complete defensive end. The question now is whether he can recapture the pass-rushing magic of 2011. Just because he has NFL experience doesn’t mean he’s not still picking up new tricks at 24.”
