Atlanta Falcons: Updated first-round options
3) Noah Spence, DE
Noah Spence has been a rather unheard of name for much of the 2015, but finally got back into the headlines after a terrific Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama. Spence was one a high touted prospect and was expected to be the next big thing at Ohio State but one thing led to another and he quickly found himself in lowly Eastern Kentucky.
Spence has the potential to be the best pass rusher in this years’ draft and could possibly fall to No. 17 but the odds of that happening aren’t great. Spence is as good as it gets when it comes to rushing the passer and that should speak volumes to Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff.
It may be worth trading up five picks to draft a guy of his talent because he may not fall to 17. A recent FanSided mock draft selected by site editors did not pick Spence until pick 21 so there might be a chance. This a guy that is extremely high on my radar but don’t think he’s a lock to Atlanta because he’s far from it. A good combine could completely ruin any hopes as well.
