JPP: Listed As One Of NFL's Seven Most Dominant Non-QBs

New, comments

NFL.com today listed Jason Pierre-Paul as one of the seven most dominant players in the league at a position other than quarterback.

Pierre-Paul is the defensive version of Calvin Johnson. His physical size and athletic ability are so off the charts that it is tough to come up with a defensive comparison from the present or the past. His length and ability to corner the edge is similar to Jevon Kearse, but he's much thicker and stronger. In 2011, JPP was a dominant force with 86 tackles and 16.5 sacks. He creates major matchup problems no matter where he aligns. From the outside, his power is a major issue for offensive tackles, while his quickness gives interior offensive lineman fits. One highly respected NFL defensive line coach believes he's the best pass rusher to enter the league in the past 10 years.

You certainly won't get any argument from me. Oh, just a request. Perry Fewell, please don't play Pierre-Paul at nose tackle!
