Sean Spence has an intangible talent that none of you have touched on. Yes, he is smallish, yes he is fast, yes, he is not strong. All of those things can be overcome with training and strength conditioning. More weight does not necessarily mean less speed (Look at how fast Timmons is). The thing Spence has is the ability to read plays, being aware of where the ball is and where it's going, and adjust immediately to it. Those things cannot be taught and it is rare. That is why he was picked.

I have said it before and I will say it again. Due to that ability, he will very likely become a safety for us. Not many agree, but his size and ability project it.

At this point, I am more concerned about the injury. It looked pretty bad at the time.
