The 24-year-old JPP is, to put it as plainly as possible, a freak of nature. He's arguably the most exciting defensive player to wear a Giants uniform since Michael Strahan retired, and you might even be able to convince me that he has the potential to be the most dominating defensive player to wear Giants blue since a guy named Lawrence Taylor.

His arms are about 12 feet long, and it sometimes seems as if he can be completely blocked by an offensive lineman, yet still somehow manage to reach around him and wrap up the quarterback—actually, I'm not entirely sure he hasn't done that already. His 16.5 sacks in 2011 were just a preview of how good he can be.
