04/27/12 - LB Sean Spence, Miami (Fla.) -- Only 5-11, 230, Spence is faster on the field than his 4.6 40 times at the Combine. He gets downgraded for average strength but his amazing recognition skills through diligent film study might still help him be a three-down linebacker for the Steelers.
03/16/12 - NFL Draft Scout Top Edge Players, OLB/DE: Sean Spence, OLB, Miami, 5-11, 231, 2-3...Spence does everything he can to overcome lack of natural size and strength. He is already a coach on the field - something teams may note for the future - and shows amazing recognition skills that result from intense film analysis. Athletically, he reads and reacts quickly without wasted steps. Spence is not fooled often by play action, and shows above average skills as a pass defender. At the combine, he said "I think I am a three-down linebacker - very fast, I can go sideline to sideline, I'm a smart, very instinctive player. ... I lead by example, and most of all I make plays." Indeed, Spence has been consistent throughout his athletic career, collecting more than 100 tackles as a senior on Miami Northwestern High School's 2007 national championship team (chosen by USA Today). In 2008, he earned ACC Rookie of the Year honors at Miami and his career totals include 317 tackles (169 solo and 46 for a loss) and 10.5 sacks. But he may be tagged as an overachiever based on his workout at the combine, which included only 12 reps with 225 pounds on the bench press and a mediocre 4.71 seconds in 40 yards. He said afterward he had a bad shoulder and usually benches at least 19. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange/NFLDraftScout.com
