With Osi Umenyiora staying put, it seems like the Giants made a very wise decision in taking Jason Pierre-Paul, a guy with very little experience. He'll have plenty of time to learn, and be groomed and molded by the veterans until the Giants really need him to contribute.
In the meantime, with his athleticism, he'll be able to chip in on passing downs and special teams. While not the splashiest of picks, this one could turn out real good down the road for the Giants. While he might actually be a ‘hit or miss' pick, which Jerry Reese understandably rebuffed, it sure seems like if he ‘hits,' it could be in a big way.
