Our NFL rookie profile series continues with this analysis of 2022 NFL Draft Prospect Alec Pierce, WR from Cincinnati. We will continue to provide you with these in-depth rookie profiles and a ton of other fantasy football rookie analysis right up through the NFL Draft. Stay tuned, and stay ahead of your league.
Alec Pierce is a unique prospect for this draft class for a couple of reasons. On paper, he looks like everything you would want in a wide receiver. But questions about his consistency and production may damper his outlook. Let’s dive in.
Statistics from Stats.com.
Here lies the biggest question mark to Pierce’s profile. Why would a tall, athletic, top dog receiver on a good team only catch 52 balls for 884 yards and eight touchdowns as a senior? My very thought-out and well-researched answer is… I don’t know. Really, I don’t.
My best guess from watching the tape is that the coaching staff simply did not make it a priority to get him the ball more. Sure, Desmond Ridder missed some throws here and there (deep ball accuracy being one of his bigger question marks), but that can’t be the only reason.
