the Steelers drafted Spence with him being on the field is passing situations and covering other teams' RBs and TEs in mind. you don't draft guys in the 3rd round to only play special teams.
as for Spence being a potential starter, I believe the Steelers fully hoped and still do that he will one day develop into an every down player.
