The season of endless lists continues, but this time with something a little more unique than the typical "top coach" and "top player" lists. Rather than singing the same ole tune, Pro Football Rosters decided to take a look back at the 2010 NFL Draft to determine which of the players drafted have lived up to the hype and which players have under-performed. Perhaps not so surprisingly, New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was one of the former.
"The opposing offensive line would have to pay so much attention to the interior that Cincinnati’s Carlos Dunlap and New York Giants’ Jason Pierre-Paul would have field days off the edges," PFR wrote in part.
Whether or not this means anything substantial on an otherwise boring Mat day is irrelevant — at least it's better, more informative and more entertaining than the "who had the best 2013 draft" question that is constantly posed. In this case, at least the players have had a few years to perform before being graded and scrutinized; so kudos to PFR for that.
In addition to being named to the 2010 All-NFL Draft Team, JPP has also been named to the Pro Football Focus Top 101 Player of 2012 list, the CBS Sports Top 100 Players of 2013 list and the NFL's Top 100 Players of 2013 list.
