JASON PIERRE-PAUL: South Florida, 6046 270 4.76. Junior entry. Started seven games in college career. Transferred from Fort Scott Community College after playing at the College of the Canyons as a freshman. Football intelligence is a question mark. Can he adjust to schemes quickly? Awareness? Does he learn quickly? He will need reps. Extremely athletic. Speed rusher that plays on the same side as George Selvie at times. Built like Simon Rice. Long arms and legs. Makes several plays from backside when he went unblocked. Technique poor. One move player. When he sees it he chases it. Can turn the corner and flatten down the line of scrimmage. Lacks overall body strength to hold his ground in the run game at him. Gets buried, bounced around, and bulldozed at times. Plays with his hand in the dirt but will stand up at times. Lacks the strength to control a blocker. Slow to disengage. Instincts are off. Gets his hands up as a pass rusher and will go for the strip. Question mental toughness when he came out of games for nicks, then returns. Plays on special teams. Gives a top effort rushing the passer. Has God-given talents, but would be classified as a boom or bust player. In 2009 had 45 tackles, 6 1/2 sacks, 15 1/2 tackles for loss, 2 forced fumbles, 1 interception, 2 passes broken up, and 1 blocked kick. Edge speed:left 2.11, right 2.05. Vertical jump 30.5, short shuttle 4.69, 3 cone 7.18. OSR:21/35. First/second round. (A-34 3/4, H-10 3/8, BP-19, 10-1.68).
