Noah Spence

School: Eastern Kentucky
Position: OLB
Positive: Ohio State transfer awarded All-America and all-Conference honors last season after finishing with 63 tackles, 22.5 tackles for loss and 11.5 sacks. Also credited with 15 quarterback hurries. Terrific pass rushing defensive front 7 player effective out of a three-point stance as well as standing up over tackle. Intense, plays through the whistle and goes hard on every down. Breaks down well, shows tremendous quickness in his overall game and effectively uses his hands to protect himself. Can bend off the edge, plays with balance as well as body control and easily changes direction or immediately alters his angle of attack. Has a closing burst, plays faster than his 40 time and efficient.
Negative: Average size and speed. Not strong at the point of attack and struggled out of a three-point stance during Senior Bowl practices. Failed two drug tests which led to his dismissal from Ohio State and was arrested in May of 2015 for alcohol intoxication.
Analysis: Spence is a gifted pass rusher who plays with solid fundamentals, displays an array of moves and has a high motor. Best standing up at outside linebacker in a 34 alignment, maturity issues off the field are just about the only thing standing in his way of a long NFL career.
