Once upon a time, Noah Spence's stock was soaring. After showing average explosion and speed at the combine, and then followed by his pro day, Spence's stock has leveled out. While many now are picking apart his on field performance, Spence's off-field character concerns are still a question. These questions will lead to visits with many NFL teams leading up to the NFL Draft.
Spence is looking more and more like a mid to late 1st round selection. While the Bucs, Ravens, and Jaguars all reside within the top 10 picks, an inquiry into Noah Spence could be more of a late first round trade up from the early 2nd round than Spence being considered with a top 10 selection.
The Bucs could still use another threat off the edge, but one thing is for sure, they should not draft for desperation of that position in this draft. While Spence is a good player on film, there will likely be more talented players with less questions off the field than Spence.
