Later in the first round, with the 15th pick, the New York Giants picked former Fort Scott Community College defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who played for the Greyhounds in the 2008 season before transferring to the University of South Florida.
Pierre-Paul was one of the best athletes in the draft and somewhat of a clone to two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora, who struggled last season.
Pierre-Paul had 6.5 sacks last season at South Florida. He had 10.5 in his season at FSCC in 2008.
