    GIANTS' GM JERRY REESE FELL FOR PIERRE-PAUL EARLY

    GIANTS' GM JERRY REESE FELL FOR PIERRE-PAUL EARLY

    "Fourteen NFL teams passed on Jason Pierre-Paul in the 2010
    draft, and it’s fair to say most of those franchises regret the decision after
    he posted 16.5 sacks in his second season.

    Giants general manager Jerry Reese refuses to gloat over
    selecting the talented defensive end at No. 15, admitting that scouting, in
    general, can be a crap shoot, but JPP was an easy sell on New York’s front
    office from the start.




    “We just thought that he was an elite athlete, No. 1, and his height, weight
    and speed were off the charts,” Reese told reporters Saturday at the NFL
    Scouting Combine. “… We thought we really weren’t taking that big of a risk to
    draft a young man like him.




    “He really still hasn’t scratched the surface, we don’t think, on what we
    think we can be. We guessed right.”




    Reese and the Super Bowl-winning Giants keep hitting on dangerous defensive
    linemen, and that’s a bleak development for 31 other teams hoping to topple this
    year’s kings."

    It was between the raw athletic freak, JPP or the safe pick, Derrick Morgan. Boy did this work out for us big time.

    another reason why i think Reese goes with Zach Brown @ 32. His height weight and speed are off the charts...
