In the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Noah Spence, Defensive End out of Eastern Kentucky. Spence had a very decent, promising Rookie season, recording 5.5 Sacks and 3 Forced Fumbles in very limited playing time. Furthermore, Spence played with a shoulder injury bothering him practically throughout the entire season, which makes his numbers look even more impressive.
This offseason, the 6’2” Spence has been working on improving his body and athleticism. According to Noah himself, he played last year’s regular season at 250 lbs with 14% body fat. He recently uploaded a shirtless picture of himself at a beach, showing him much more ripped and well-defined at a whopping 9% of body fat. Noah Spence’s work ethic is un-doubtable. This body transformation will definitely help him get faster and more efficient on the field. The quickness that comes with losing weight might even get him some work as an Outside Linebacker, especially if we do end up using the 3-4 Defense more this year.
His teammate Robert Ayers has already predicted a big season for Spence. Look for him to earn a lot more playing time this year and record 10+ Sacks. Spence might end up establishing himself as a starter on this Defense by mid-season. He will most likely be a starter and a young centerpiece of our Defense by the start of 2018, at the latest! So, Cam Newton, Drew Brees and Matt Ryan… WATCH OUT!… And good luck!
