Pierre Strong Bio

Pierre Strong was an unranked prospect coming out of Little Rock, AR.He committed to FCS powerhouse South Dakota State. After a redshirt freshman season, Strong broke out as a redshirt sophomore rushing for over 1,000 yards and 11 touchdowns. He continued to dominate in 2019, securing the lead running back position while posting another season with over 1,000 rushing yards. Covid in 2020 messed with the FCS schedule, but Pierre Strong still led the JackRabbit backfield despite not being as productive. He bounced back in 2021 with over 200 rush attempts and over 1,600 yards.

At the Combine, he absolutely melted faces after running a 4.37 40 yard dash. When adjusted for speed, he scored a 95th percentile Speed Score. In the explosion drills, he continued to excel and showcased a 75th percentile Burst Score. Similar to Miles Sanders, the problem will be draft capital. Projected to go in the 5th round, Pierre Strong was everyone’s pre-draft pick to be the next James Robinson.

Pierre Strong Jr. was selected in the 4th round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. Talk about a clusterf*ck. The only advice here is to pick the least expensive one here if you want to invest in the Patriots offense.
