Mike Garafolo is reporting that South Florida DE Jason Pierre-Paul visited the Giants earlier this week. Pierre-Paul is projected to be a high first round pick.
I would not be a fan of a Pierre-Paul to the Giants. While Pierre-Paul has a world of talent, he is so raw. He’s only played one season of major college football. He got by mostly on his athleticism, but that won’t fly in the NFL.
Pierre-Paul is a classic boom or bust type, and the Giants aren’t traditionally interested in those type of players. I think the Giants would be making a mistake in picking Pierre-Paul. For those interested, his prospect profile is here.
Garafolo also revealed, in that same article, some more players who visited the Giants. They are: Duke Calhoun, WR, Memphis; O’Brien Schofield, LB, Wisconsin; Mitch Unrein, DE, Utah; and Phillip Dillard, LB, Nebraska.
That puts the known total of non-local visits at 15. You are allowed 30. Here are the 15 that we know of:
Penn State LB Navorro Bowman
Memphis WR Duke Calhoun
Nebraska LB Phillip Dillard
North Alabama LB Michael Johnson
LSU S Chad Jones
Penn State LB Sean Lee
Alabama LB Rolando McClain
Houston TE Fendi Onobun
Indiana (Pa.) S/KR Akwasi Owusu-Ansah
South Florida DE Jason Pierre-Paul
Wisonsin LB O’Brien Schofield
Iowa CB Amari Spievey
Buffalo RB James Starks
