The Giants came to terms Saturday with their first-round pick, DE Jason Pierre-Paul, a league source has told NFL.com.

The 15th overall draft choice out of South Florida will sign a five-year contract worth $20.05 million, according to the source, with $11.629 million guaranteed.

In PFW's 2010 Draft Preview, personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote that Pierre-Paul is "loaded with upside" but is "very unrefined and unproven and could struggle to ever live up to his first-round draft billing."

Because of his limited football experience, Pierre-Paul is expected to be used primarily as a situational pass rusher during his rookie season.
