Chris Spencer - C

 Chris Spencer Grade: 3.73
 Position: C
 Class: Jr
 School: Ole Miss
 Conference: SEC
 Ht., Wt.: 6-3, 309
 40 Time: 5.26
  Selected by: Seattle Seahawks
  Round 1, pick 26 (26 overall)

BIO: Moved into the starting lineup on a full-time basis last year and named All-Conference. Saw extensive playing time the prior two seasons at both center and guard.

POSITIVES: Athletic blocker explosive at the point of attack. Quickly gets into blocks, plays with forward lean and easily rides defenders from their angle of attack. Stays square, works his hands throughout the action and seals defenders from the play with good body positioning. Jolts opponents and displays explosion at the point. Tough, and stays with the action until the whistle blows. Effective on the second level, adjusts or redirects to linebackers and gets results blocking on the move. Fundamentally sound and works well with linemates.

NEGATIVES: Stiff in his upper body and must improve his hand placement. Needs work on shotgun snaps.

ANALYSIS: A terrific prospect who offers a good degree of upside, Spencer has continually progressed on the college level and made the most of his opportunity last season. Effectively snapped to three different quarterbacks in 2004, and while he needs to iron out the details of his game, a prospect who could eventually start in the NFL.

PROJECTION: Late Second Round
