The Indianapolis Colts spent the offseason upgrading their passing attack.
The No. 53 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft, Alec Pierce was a big part of that plan. Pierce is poised to be the team’s No. 2 target. Rookie growing pains have persisted, but reports from camp say his confidence is continuing to grow. He’s seen first-team reps frequently and has seen starting game reps in 11 personnel.
It may take a little bit of time for Pierce to establish himself, but once he gains quarterback Matt Ryan’s trust, a true ascension can begin. For someone with as much upside as Pierce, DraftKings’ +3000 odds to win Offensive Rookie of the Year offers some value, if you’re willing to take the plunge.
