DRAFT TARGET DATA SHEET
(12 OF 17)
|AUDIO||Charles Spencer on his versatility|
|INTERACTION||Visited Allen Park|
Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 352 40: 5.36 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Former defensive lineman who moved to the offensive side of the ball as a junior, then proceeded to win All-Conference honors the following two years. Used at left tackle as a senior after playing guard the prior year.
Pos: Big, strong blocker with a good degree of upside. Athletic, plays with leverage and moves opponents off the line. Displays good hand punch, pushes rushers from their angle of attack and works assignments. Effective position blocker on the second level. Patient in pass protection and anchors at the point.
Neg: Lacks blocking range and top footwork. Poorly conditioned and seemingly skates through plays at times.
Analysis: Ever-improving on the offensive line, Spencer made major strides in his game the past two years. Has starting potential at the next level yet must put forth consistent effort and properly condition himself.
Lions Interest: Depending on how Detroit selects in the first two rounds, Spencer could be considered as a third round pick. The Lions need to address the guard position at some point during the draft, and Spencer -- who has a ton of potential but could still slide due to questions on his "consistency" -- wouldn't be a bad pick-up. He is a reach at the second round, especially with more talented options (i.e. Davin Joseph) available.
