Lamar Miller?!? Do it

Polk and Turbin are BEASTS. 

Miller... well, OK, fast.  Could be worth a swing, sure.

You know better than me, man.

Sean Spence!!!!!!!! Fuck yes!!!!! And I hate Miami

Quoth the Finny:

Quote
Miami OLB Sean Spence[/u], 5’11”, 231#, 4.71, 12 reps, 33 ½” VJ, 9’11” BJ, ranked 82nd, gets flagged for those 12 reps but lifted in Indy with a shoulder bruise and reportedly can lift around 20 reps.  He’s also closer to David Lavonte size than Bobby Wagner or Mychal Kendricks, and sometimes it really is just a matter of 10 or 15#.  But I’m hesitant to disqualify Spence even with all that.  What Spence has is football ability.  His read and react, his nose to sniff out plays and anticipate where the ball is going, plus production and blitzing, all add up to make Spence an intriguing mid-round prospect.  Pittsburgh was well represented at Miami’s pro day, and Spence has to be a guy they were looking at.  Borderline size, speed, but everything else you could want from an ILB has Spence a R3 guy for me.  Spence is exempted from the Carter Rule because his eval is based on football skills, with measurables much less part of the overall grade.

Really, he's about Farrior-sized, great instincts and playmaking.  The best fall-back past Wagner, Kendricks, and Davis.  

DDC:  A+

Adams:  Floor - F, Ceiling - A, so INC.

Spence:  B+, most will say worse, fuck 'em

Spence was the best player in a underachieving Miami team. Solid leader who has a knack for the ball. Don't let the strength numbers fool you as he was hurt when the bench press was initially taken. More like a 20 rep guy. More importantly tremendous football instincts.

Spence was one of the sickest safeties in the country as far as I remember. His instincts to FLY to first read lead them to move him over. Sometimes he over pursues. Very Timmons like. Great upside from what I have seen.

I know I'm a chick, but seriously, I've been VERY happy with this draft so far.
I may be wrong, but when was the last time THAT happened???

And we got a UM kid to boot? Size? They bitched about Troy's size too, IIRC. How's that been working out?
