With the 15th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the New York Giants select…DE Jason Pierre-Paul? Shocker isn’t it. Even thought the G-Men picked two defensive lineman with their first two picks, I think the Giants had a great draft and I’ll tell you why. First of all they addressed all the needs they needed to fill in the Draft… MLB, DT, S, OL, Punter. Second of all, when Jerry Reese is your GM, you know you’re getting quality players in the Draft. And last but not least, the Giants picked all players that could possibly start for the team. I know Giants fans were surprised with them picking Pierre-Paul but I LOVE THIS PICK!! Jason is a big, physical player who will do anything to get a hard hit. He is tall which will be a perfect fit on the D-Line. If Osi and Chris Canty play up to potential this season, listen to this D-Line. Justin Tuck, Chris Canty, Barry Cofield, Osi Umenyiora, Mathias Kiwanuka, Linval Joesph, Jay Alford, and of course Jason Pierre-Paul. You cannot say that the D-Line isn’t stacked. If all of these players play up to potential and don’t get injured they WILL get to the quarterback. Another thing I want to talk about is the Giants fourth round pick, MLB Phillip Dillard. A lot of people don’t agree with me but I think Dillard can fill Pierce’s hole and step up to eventually be a defensive captain. He is a very hard worker and he won’t give up until he gets to his goal. Even though he is a little undersized, I think he will fit fine.
