NEW YORK, USA (defend.ht) - After only 3 years as a professional, the National Football League named New York Giants Defensive End and Super Bowl Champion Jason Pierre-Paul one of the most dominant football players in the game.
The Super Bowl Champion Pierre-Paul was said to be off the charts in his physical size and athletic ability. His play on the defensive line and on special teams are the reason he was name one of the most dominant players that is not a quarterback.
Daniel Jeremiah and NFL.com analyst wrote that "it is tough to come up with a defensive comparison from the present or the past" to JPP.
Jeremiah writes in his dominant countdown that Pierre-Paul's "length and ability to corner the edge is similar to Jevon Kearse, but he's much thicker and stronger. In 2011, JPP was a dominant force with 86 tackles and 16.5 sacks. He creates major matchup problems no matter where he aligns. From the outside, his power is a major issue for offensive tackles, while his quickness gives interior offensive lineman fits. One highly respected NFL defensive line coach believes he's the best pass rusher to enter the league in the past 10 years."
It is hard to believe that JPP will only be entering his 3rd year in the NFL and has developed into such a dominant force.
