When the Bucs drafted Noah Spence in the second round in 2016 they knew they were getting an excellent Pass Rusher.
Overall, most viewed him as the best pass rusher in the draft, but fell to the second round due to disciplinary concerns. His rookie year showed a lot of promise with 5.5 sacks. Then the injury bug bit, causing him to miss all of the 2017 season as well.
Now, after finally getting healthy, Spence has something to prove. He has to prove to be a player that can not only rush the passer, but stop the run as well.
After adding 35lbs to his 6’2″ frame, results have already been seen this preseason. He’s shown he is very quick at setting the edge to plug the run. This is Spence’s year to prove he’s a 3 down player.
