The Broncos enter week two of spring ball tomorrow morning.  Junior safety DeAndre Pierce is looking to start where he finished off last season as a threat to opposing receivers and quarterbacks.

Last season pierce had two interceptions along with 2 passes broken up and he finished with 83 tackles.  His first career interception was off Josh Allen of Wyoming who is considered to be a top 10 pick in this year's NFL draft.

Pierce says getting the chance to see the field every year has developed him into the player he is today.

"Having that first season with all those snaps I have finally found out my true strengths and true weaknesses.  Last year was last year we just can't sit on that and just say we were the top 25 team in the country in turnovers.  Everybody has to be hungry and humble. Everybody has to go attack the ball really that's how you make your money," said Junior Safety DeAndre Pierce.

 

News & Notes on Offensive Line

The Broncos struggled out of the gate to begin the year at Offensive line a season ago but they were able to come together when it mattered most.

The line gave up 28 sacks last season which ranked 72nd among FBS teams.  One key loss this year will be center Mason Hampton due to graduation.

The unit will need to work out the kinks thru spring ball to help give quarterback Brett Rypien more time.  He was sacked 20 times last year.
