Sean Spence scouting report

Sean Spence LB Miami FL #31
Ht: 5’11”

Wt: 231

 
Strengths:
Smart, hard-working player. Put in a lot of work in the weight room to bulk up throughout his college career. Hard hitter; has the ability to jar the ball loose. High-energy player who gives his full effort on every play. Decent athleticism for a linebacker.
Weaknesses:
Vastly undersized; lacks the height and overall bulk that most teams want in their linebackers. Even some 4-3 teams may view him as too small to play weak-side linebacker. Lacks the fluid athleticism to transition to safety. Plays out of control at times; flies all over the field, but often takes poor angles to the ball carrier. Can’t shed a block to save his life; ineffective at the point of attack against the run, especially when lined up right at the line of scrimmage. Needs to do a better job keeping his eyes in the backfield; often late to react to misdirection plays. Suspended for one game in 2011 for receiving improper benefits.
Comments:
Spence was a productive college linebacker, but there may not be a position for him in the NFL. He’s too small to play anything but weak-side linebacker in a 4-3 scheme and he isn’t quite athletic enough to transition to strong safety. Even if someone likes his ability as a weak-side linebacker, he isn’t a three-down linebacker. He’ll be limited to a backup role and playing on special teams.
