More from McShay on Pierre-Paul in NFL Draft



ESPN's Todd McShay had a teleconference Tuesday to talk about prospects in the 2010 NFL Draft, and USF junior defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was one of the potential draft picks he discussed. Pierre-Paul has played just one season of major college football, but has submitted his name to the NFL's advisory board for underclassmen to get a better sense of where he might be picked if he entered the draft. Here's what McShay had to say about him:


“The one player that has come out of nowhere – only because he was a first-year player -- and that is Jason Pierre-Paul from South Florida. He’s a very disruptive player. He didn’t have the production down the stretch I would have liked to see him finish with, but a year ago, he wasn’t playing at South Florida. He was at a smaller school level. He transfers in and is able to make a huge impact. With George Selvie being the name of that defensive front, he outplayed Selvie leaps and bounds and (was) better than him week in and week out. I think Jason Pierre-Paul has a chance to be a first round pick as a result, maybe worst case, early second round whereas last year nobody knew about him.”
