Ravens’ Michael Pierce hopes team will draft younger brother, Myles Pierce

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: OCT 21 The Citadel at Chattanooga

In 2016, Michael Pierce emerged as possibly the best find for the Ravens in recent years. Undrafted, Pierce came in and was immediately a key player on the defensive line. He and Brandon Williams make up one of the best run stuffing duos in the league.

Now, Pierce is hoping that his little brother, Myles, can join him in Baltimore.

Baltimoreravens.com’s Ryan Mink had the chance to interview Myles during Wednesday’s Senior Bowl practice, with his older brother there to give a sales pitch.

Myles Pierce was an inside linebacker for the Citadel Bulldogs, standing at 6-foot-0 and 225 pounds. When asked what kind of player he is, Pierce described his play as a downfield thumper who can make plays sideline to sideline.

Just how good is Pierce though? He finished the 2017 season with 91 tackles. He is a little undersized to be an inside linebacker. However, Myles is looking to follow in his brothers footsteps, who hopes he ends up on the Ravens with him.

Much like his brother, Michael, Myles seems to be flying under the radar of scouts. Projected as a late round pick or even going undrafted, Pierce is set out to work hard and earn his spot on an NFL roster.

Michael, when asked to give a sales pitch for his little brother, said he was the most physical linebacker in the draft. The question is, will he end up in Baltimore?
