I know we keep hearing about Spence being Butlers guy but I'm not so sure there wasn't a little voice in his ear. Tomlin worked with a guy who was very similiar coming out of college and turned out to be a hell of an NFL talent. He reminds me alot of him when you watch him on film. He also was undersized and his play was centered around his unique instincts for his position. If Spence ends up being anything close to Derrick Brooks...We have a gem.

Using your intellect and football sense in knowing where to position yourself on a play sometimes is all that is needed to equalize the size/strength advantage of the opponent. The very fact that Spence is being noticed this early speaks volumes on his potential.
Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!
