2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida

Jason Pierre-Paul did not exactly come out of nowhere, but it sure seems that way to many who do not follow the Big East closely. Pierre-Paul was a very highly touted recruit coming out of high school, but he ended up at the junior college level. He spent his freshman campaign at College of the Canyons and then transferred to Fort Scott Community College before eventually ending up at South Florida. Needless to say Pierre-Paul was a dominating player at the junior college level. However, the domination continued at the FBS level. With a superb pass rusher in George Selvie at the other defensive end spot, Pierre-Paul got a lot of opportunities during his first season with the Bulls. Through 11 games he leads the team with 5.5 sacks and 14.5 tackles-for-loss. Some of that production may be due to the opposition worrying too much about Selvie, but Pierre-Paul is a great pass rusher in his own right. At 6-6 and 260 pounds, Pierre-Paul is a monster of a defensive lineman. He has the size and the strength to battle with just about anybody at any level. Right now he could be a first round selection, but that is mostly based on potential and the NFL will definitely take him on potential. 1/24 Update: The debate still rages among draft gurus about George Selvie and South Florida teammate Jason Pierre-Paul. Selvie is obviously the more experienced option, but Pierre-Paul put up better numbers in 2009 and ended the campaign with 6.5 sacks and 16.5 tackles-for-loss. He is also expected to test out better at the NFL Combine. His lack of experience will be an issue for some, but if he does as well as expected in workouts leading up to the draft, he could sneak into the first round. 3/29 Update: Not surprisingly, Pierre-Paul tested out much better in all the workouts than his former teammate. So much so that comparisons between the two are a moot point. While Selvie will be lucky to be off the board by the fifth round, Pierre-Paul is eyeing the top spot among all defensive ends. He probably should not get it with Derrick Morgan and Everson Griffen moving up draft boards, but Pierre-Paul is a beast and a superb athlete. NFL teams will take that over experience any day.

Small school. Look for him as an outside 3-4.

The end of Rd1. Has the frame to put on 10# and be a 4-3 DE. Pass rushers are a PREMIUM so his stock raises

Late 1st round early second

To Dulatows

Small school??? not a chance.. USF is the 7th biggest university in the nation (enrollment wise). 2nd biggest in Fl only to UCF. Not to mention we have 5 prospects this year that will probably get drafted in the NFL. I don't think "small schools" send 5 players to the NFL in one year.
