Tampa needed an edge rusher and they got one.


Tampa selects Noah Spence with the 39th pick in the 2016 draft.

Noah Spence in his sophomore year at Ohio State recorded 52 tackles, in which 14 of them were for losses and 8 of them were sacks! Spence has had his shares of ups and downs, but among those ups is a First-Team All-Big Ten. Of those downs were a failed drug test and a banishment from his school and conference.


That wouldn’t stop Noah from getting back on the right track, as he found his second chance at the University of Eastern Kentucky, where he went off! He recorded 63 tackles, 31 which were solo, 22.5 tackles for losses, 11.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles. Yep! He sounds like Buccaneers material to me.


The days of his drug usage is long behind him, as he admits that it was a huge mistake that almost cost him his career. With the help of his family, he kept his focus on football and now, Noah Spence is a player in the National Football league! A dream come true for the young man.
