Biography: Rotational defensive lineman who saw limited starting action the past two seasons. Posted just two tackles as a senior after missing time with assorted injuries. Junior totals included 8 tackles.

Positives: Explosive one-gap defensive lineman who's never met expectations on the college level. Explosive off the snap and shows a burst of speed. Plays low to the ground, fluid changing direction, and keeps his feet moving throughout the action. Works his hands to get off blocks and chases plays hard.

Negatives: Marginal size and easily blocked at the angle of attack. Minimally productive on the college level and has seen limited playing time. Struggles beating opponents if he does not get the first step on them.

Analysis: Spicer is a potential one-gap tackle with backup possibilities at the next level if he elevates his game this summer.

Projection: FA
