Spencer finished second in the country with 26½ tackles for loss. If he can run in the 4.6s, there may be talk about his potential as an outside linebacker, which should cause his stock to skyrocket.
Did not do agility drills, just ran 40.

Draft Scout Anthony Spencer News
07/25/14 - DE Anthony Spencer (knee) was declared active/physically unable to perform by the Cowboys Thursday (July 25).
06/13/14 - DE Anthony Spencer began light running for the first time since having microfracture knee surgery.
Spencer is confident his comeback from the surgery will have a happy ending, with him on the field at some point in the 2014 season.
"I'm sure some other people have their doubts, but I don't have any doubts, no," Spencer said.
He said he could open training camp on the physically unable to perform list. Active/PUP would allow him to return to practice any time before final cuts. Reserve/PUP would force him to miss the first six games.
Spencer said his rehab has him convinced he will be back.
"Because of the progress that I see, I've seen not being able to walk to being able to walk to being able to run," he said. "I feel good about it."
Spencer, who played only 34 snaps last season before undergoing surgery, is encouraged because of the work he has done running of late. But he knows he has a long way to go.
"It's one thing to be able to run and then another whole thing to play football, so I've got a little ways to go," Spencer, 30, said. "But it's progress."
