Ht: 6-4 Wt: 307 40: 5.01 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Three-year starter voted All-American as
a senior after winning All-Conference honors
the past two seasons. Totaled 49/17/9 last
year after 49/13/6 the previous campaign. Has
intercepted four passes since his sophomore
Positives: Well-sized, athletic defensive
lineman who offers a good degree of upside
potential. Forceful up the field, plays through
blocks and quick changing direction to pursue
the action laterally. Plays low with leverage,
balance and body control. Easily moves to the
sidelines, can drop off the line of scrimmage
and make plays in space or in any direction
of the field. Displays an explosive inside move,
reads the action and quick locating the ball.
Negatives: Must improve his tackling technique.
Rather easily held up at the point by ordinary
opponents. Does not always seem in a hurry
to get involved in the action or pursue the play
if it's not in his immediate vicinity.
outstanding athlete who, when on his game,
can be a difference maker, Spears offers early
first round physical skills yet has late first day
motivation. A tough lineman to block, he is a
disruptive force rushing the passer, defending
the run or even playing in space. Could be a
perfect fit at left end in a conventional defense
or as a two-gap lineman, but must start to apply
himself on a consistent basis to ever reach the
potential he possesses.
