2013 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about AKEEM SPENCE: Illinois, 6005 307 5.09. Junior entry. Three-year starter with a quick first step. Plays like a linebacker when on his feet getting through traffic. Doesn’t stay blocked. An under tackle prospect who collected 141 tackles the past three years. Lacks sack numbers, but is sticky in the run game. A thickly build interior lineman who takes on blocks using all his limbs as weapons. Strong enough to collapse the pocket. Plays low and with leverage. Has a punch, shed, and spin move. Powerful and active. Good lateral quickness to help out on the perimeter. Impact type hitter. Explosive and productive in his play. Must always play with good knee bend to leverage blocker in both the run and pass game because of his fringe size. Grades out as a good rotational backup player who will help energize a 4-man defensive front. 2012 stats: 72 T, 7 TFL, 1 sack, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 1.93, right 1.90. OSR:5/17. Fourth/fifth round. (A-33 1/2, H-10, BP-37, 10-1.74).
