    Apparently Pierce has spoken with the Bucs and are on their radar as well since they're going to need a running back with all the free agents on roster coming up.

    How cool would it be to have Trask handing him the ball?

    Hopefully that translates to a couple extra years that he wouldn’t have had if he was given the ball 25 times every game

    5 carries today for 16yds.
    1 rec for 5yds.

    No problem, DP did all of his work during practice this week, that’s what the coaches & scouts put the most stock in.

    One analyst remark today: “You do not want to see Dameon Pierce in space. Dude is a Mack truck.”

    “The question I came away with from this week: Why didn’t Dan Mullen and the Gators feature Pierce more? The Senior Bowl is seldom a place where backs can impress significantly, but Pierce bucked that trend.

    All week long, he looked assertive as a runner and pass blocker and facile as a receiver. Watching his burst, vision and yards-after-contact ability, Pierce looked more like a big fish in a small pond rather than someone who averaged fewer than 100 touches over his four seasons in Gainesville.

    How the 5-9, 220-pound back never received more than 17 touches in his 48 college games feels like coaching malpractice.”

    That list doesn't include the top 4 backs that didn't play in the senior bowl. But DP definitely made a showing.

    BUCS Forenette and Jones are free agents. Jones has been somewhat of a bust.
    DP to the BUCS with their 3 or 4 Rd draft pick.
