Pierre-Paul
The Kansas City Chiefs selected Tennessee safety Eric Berry with the fifth overall pick in the NFL draft Thursday night.

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.
