NFL.com analyst Elliot Harrison set out to find the best offensive and defensive NFL players under the age of 25. According to Giants.com, Harrison says, "Pro football is a young man's game. No doubt about that."

Among those selected was New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who just turned 24 on Jan. 11th. He was the only member of the New York Giants to make the squad.

Pierre-Paul had a down 2012 season in terms of sacks, but he hasn't regressed on the field. He still had a good season against the run game and no quarterback will want to go up against him. In three seasons he has 27.5 sacks and 132 tackles. Pierre-Paul can become and even more powerful defensive end if the defense is built around him.
