Scouting Report: Cody Spencer
Name: Cody Spencer School: North Texas State Year: 4Sr Ht: 6-2 Wt: 235 40: 4.78 Pos: ILB Bio: Three year starter who earned All-Conference honors as both a junior and senior. Finished with110 tackles, 6 tackles for loss and 2 sacks last season, while intercepting 3 passes and breaking up 3 more. Junior numbers included 66 tackles with 5 sacks and 3 interceptions. Had a breakout campaign as a sophomore when he totaled 105 tackles. Pos: Heady, run defending linebacker best as a two down defender. Quick to key and diagnose, efficient and takes good angles to the action. Disciplined, scrapes well laterally and stays with assignments. Works hard, snuffs out the action and wraps up tackling. Neg: Not quick or explosive in any aspect, lacks the fluid change of direction and struggles in coverage. Does not get depth on drops, nor does he play with great balance if moving in any direction other than a straight line. Analysis: Spencer has adequate size as an inside linebacker but a nose for the ball and a natural feel in run defense. Best possibility would be a back-up in a 3-4 defense.
