    Ravens running back Bernard Pierces showed plenty of potential his rookie season, coming on strong in the second half of the year and finishing with 532 rushing yards and a touchdown. The hard-nosed running back provided a boost to the offense in the playoffs, and he’s shown the ability to be a playmaker when he gets his hands on the football, and he’s looking to build off the impressive rookie campaign.

    Downing reports while Ray Rice has been firmly entrenched at the top of the depth chart the last few seasons, he’ll get pushed by Pierce this season. The two backs have different styles, so rotating them in and out of games will allow them both to stay fresh and also mix up the looks for the defenses. Rice had 257 carries to Pierce’s 108 last year, but a strong showing from Pierce could balance out that distribution a little more.
