Bio: 
Three-year starter at center who played two games at right guard as a sophomore. Senior captain who was named Honorable Mention All-Big Ten. Earned Academic All-Big Ten all four seasons with the Illini.
Pos: 
Tough, durable college lineman with limited potential. Explosive, plays with a good degree of quickness and keeps his head on a swivel. Intelligent, works well with line mates and blocks with proper fundamentals. Effectively quarterbacks the offensive line.
Neg: 
Displays average strength in his base and does not get much movement run blocking. Ineffective blocking in motion.
Analysis: 
Spencer got the most from his ability but lacks the athleticism to play on Sunday. His approach to the game and football intelligence warrants a spot on the practice squad.
