Noah Spence Set To Visit NY Jets On Wednesday

New, comments

One of the most interesting prospects is set to visit the Jets this week ahead of the NFL Draft.

Noah Spence is one of the most talented players in the draft, he also has a history that saw him battle through drug problems, leading him from Ohio State to Eastern Kentucky.

He flashed 1st round elite talent at Ohio State before being kicked out of the Big Ten. He landed in Eastern Kentucky and absolutely dominated to the tune of 63 tackles, 15 QB hurries,  22.5 tackles for a loss, 11.5 sacks and 3 forced fumbles

The Jets have needed a pure edge rusher for a number of years and Spence certainly has that talent. If you're worried about his battles with Ecstacy, thats understandable. However after initially deluding himself into believing he didn't have a problem, Noah faced up to the issue head on, he admitted he had a problem and sought help. He graduated from the problem and then fought to rebuild his career and reputation at Eastern Kentucky.

I personally don't think he makes it out of the first round, so if the Jets are interested...they probably have to use their 1st round selection to secure his services.
