2014 Draft: Rnd 2 Pick 2
Yhonzae Pierre is a high-energy, disruptive pass usher who has some similarities to DeMarcus Lawrence. Pierre is a more touted prospect than Lawrence at the same stage, but we see similarities in the physical dimensions, on-field twitch and ability to disrupt as a pass rusher. Both are at their best when allowed to use their explosive athleticism to get after quarterbacks.
