Throughout the week in Mobile, Alabama, Eastern Kentucky defensive end Noah Spence has been dominating one-on-one drills during South practices.
Unfortunately, it appears that he is struggling in another aspect.
Spence, who has had his fair share of off-field issues throughout his collegiate career, has reportedly been struggling during interviews with various NFL teams. Per Walter Football, “teams weren’t impressed with how Spence answered their questions.”
Another player who struggled with interviews has been Miles Killebrew of Southern Utah.
Spence was suspended at Ohio State for multiple failed drug tests, before heading to Eastern Kentucky. There, his off-field issues continued as he was arrested for public intoxication. However, Eastern Kentucky stuck by Spence and allowed him an opportunity to rebuild his image.
Now, he will need to work on convincing NFL teams he is a reliable guy.
Luckily, the players will have plenty of time to change the perception of teams as they continue to meet throughout the draft process. From Pro Days to the Scouting Combine to official visits, Spence will need to work on handling the interview process better if he wants to be drafted as high as his talent suggests he should be.
