Terry Pierce won Defensive Freshman of the Year in 2000 under a hard coach Bill Snyder team. Pierce chose to leave Kansas State a year early and try his luck in the NFL in 2003. He was selected by the Denver Broncos in the second round.

The Broncos were excited for the player they were getting, someone who was going to reign terror on offenses. Pierce played for the Broncos for four seasons but was never able to get his career off the ground. He was plagued by detrimental injuries that hindered his ability to play at a high level.

Pierce picked up just eight tackles over the course of four seasons. After the Broncos chose not to resign Pierce, he went and was picked up by the Texans. Pierce was only with the Texans for a few months before being cut before training camp started.
