Ochmed has been on the Carlos Dunlap bandwagon for a long time now. I'm going to go out on a limb and tout a different physical freak, DE Jason Pierre-Paul from USF, a JUCO transfer who plays alongside George Selvie. Pierre-Paul is 6-6" 265# from Haiti (nicknamed the "Haitian Sensation" as a teenager) with supposed 4.60 speed and an incredible 81" wingspan. He has a terrific motor, decent technique (though still a bit raw) for his level of experience, good ball skills, and the ability to alter passes and block passing lanes. Nate Allen got an interception against Cincinnati due to a pass which Pierre-Paul altered. Against Florida St. he made a one-handed interception. His length, speed and ability to run down opposing players has drawn comparisons to a young Javon Kearse. He has been getting some attention recently due to his play, and is considered a late 1st/early 2nd round guy if he comes out early in 2010, and a sure-fire top 10 guy if he waits till 2011. Mel Kiper currently has him #12 on his big board, and NFP ranks him #24 in their Super 30. Here's what some folks have to say about Pierre-Paul: 1. Mel Kiper, ESPN has ranked Pierre-Paul as his 2nd DE after Carlos Dunlap and calls him an "explosive, natural pass-rusher". Pierre-Paul Moving Up on NFL Draft Board Says Kiper | theledger.com | The Ledger | Lakeland, FL 2. Nolan Nawrocki, ProFootballWeekly: "The premium placed on pass rushers tends to lead many underclassmen out of school early when they possess rare gifts that cannot be coached. Julius Peppers and Mario Williams were both drafted among the top two picks not because of their consistent performance in college but because of their exceptional upside. In this year's draft, Florida's Carlos Dunlap and South Florida's Jason Pierre-Paul both possess unique physical skill sets â€” and Paul really put himself on the map the past two weeks against Florida State and Syracuse, when he snagged a one-handed interception and returned it for an 18-yard TD. He has vines for arms and exceptional athletic ability, comparable to a young Jevon Kearse. Physically, Dunlap looked like he could jump to the pros from the time he entered the Florida program, possessing the rare size and wingspan to line up anywhere along the line, but his motor tends to idle and he still has not figured out how to use his hands or play with the type of power he possesses." ProFootballWeekly.com - Clemson DE Sapp's talent outweighs production 3. Wes Bunting from the National Football Post raved about Pierre-Paul following the Cincinnati game: "What a freak (and I mean that in a good way) South Florida defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has to be one of the toughest linemen in the nation to block. His combination of athleticism, power and length gives him the ability to routinely stack and shed in all areas of the game. Against Cincinnati, he was consistently able to set the edge in the run game, control blockers at the point of attack and make his way toward the ball. And in the pass game, he showcased an impressive first step for his size off the edge and loves to go to his rip move to keep blockers from getting their hands on him. Heâ€™s still very raw with his instincts, stance and overall hand technique, but the kid has an incredible-looking frame and features an amazing 81-inch wingspan. He finished with five tackles, two tackles for loss, two quarterback hurries and was consistently able to slip blocks and work his way toward the football. I could see him developing into something special as either a 4-3 or 3-4 defensive end." Scout?s notebook: Thursday review | National Football Post 4. Matt Maguire from Walter Football raves about Pierre-Paul: "When you play this well, you deserve a nickname. We gave Darrius Heyward-Bey "DHB" - Jean Pierre-Paul is officialy "JPP" on this Web site. JPP simply was dominant against Cincinnati and flashed some serious talent and a competitive attitude. I'm not going to give him a first-round grade until I see another game or two, but he should definitely be on everyone's radar. I haven't seen a defensive end this year that did a better job of lowering his shoulder without losing any speed. JPP can defintely run the arc and he has explosive speed off the edge. He also did a great job with his hands once getting full extension against the offensive lineman before disengaging to make the tackle for a 1-yard gain. It was textbook technique. I love his hustle and he gives that second effort you look for. He shows an ability to rush from the two-point stance, so the 3-4 teams are certainly going to watch if he can play in space and show some pass coverage ability. I love his flexbility and balance. JPP looks like a well-rounded player (the anti-Carlos Dunlap), but like I said earlier, I just don't fall in love with a player after one game of film. All of this said, I can't wait to see his next game tape. This might be the dominant defensive end this draft is currently lacking." WalterFootball.com: Matt McGuire's 2010 NFL Draft Stock: Week 7 In contrast, Maguire calls Dunlap Mr. Overated citing a lack of consistency, effort, agility and playmaking. WalterFootball.com: The NFL Matt Draft - Matt McGuire's NFL Draft Blog I think that Pierre-Paul is the most intriguing guy to come along in a while. It's still early and he's raw, but his length, speed, ability to man the edge and take on blockers, ball skills, ability to block passing lanes, and pass rushing ability make him the most intriguing elephant prospect to come along in a while. If he comes out this year I would take a long look at him as a possible 1st round pick.
