Add another CB prospect to the mix!
Shawntae Spencer
Position: CB College: Pittsburgh
Projected Selection: Round4

HEIGHT: 6'2" WEIGHT: 175 40 TIME: 4.39

Pros: Almost 50 passes defended as a 4 year starter at Pittsburgh. Very good cover corner with a great mind for the game. Good transition off the line and capable of covering any reciever

Cons: Has great height but lacks the bulk needed to get the good jam at the LOS, unconfirmed reports have his 40 time anywhere beteen 4.39 to 4.5.
Draft Exchange Analysis:

Maybe the best CB nobody's talking about, Prototypical Height for the new bread of NFL CB (though a little light) with a great head for the game, A 4 year starter at Pitt with 2 years of practice against college's best WR Larry Fitzgerald. 10 career ints. 50 passes defended and loads of tackles. Will need to add some muscle for the next level. if he runs a legit sub 4.4 40 he'll fly up draft boards.

Shawntee Spencer CB Pittsburgh


Shawntee has good size, speed and agility for his position. He has very good burst coming out of his back pedal and shows good instincts and reaction skills. Shawntee use his hands very well to keep the WR off his body. This kid loves to play CB. There is nothing about the position that bothers him. He likes the contact and the mental challenge of going up against good WR’s. He takes pride in his game, but is able to forget the bad plays and the mistakes. He has very good recovery speed and can turn and run and stay with any WR. He is a good tackler and comes up and meets the run at the line with courage and enthusiasm.

Needs to Improve

Shawntee has a bendable pipe cleaner type of build. This can be a problem at the next level because of the possibility of injuries. He must gain weight and get stronger. Right now, he is more of a drag-down tackler and in the NFL, the players will break his tackles if he doesn’t get stronger. Shawntee sometimes plays a little out of control and when he does, he loses technique.

Bottom Line

Shawntee just loves to play the CB. You can see it in his play on the field. He likes that his teammates depend on him. He likes that his coaches yell at him. He loves the fans, he loves the competition. Shawntee needs to work harder to be more consistent with his techniques. Right now, he is just better then everybody else and he has gotten into some bad habits that are not a problem at the college level, but in the NFL, they will eat him alive. Shawntee is very athletic for the CB position, but right now, he lacks the strength to stand up to the pounding that pipe cleaner body is going to take in the NFL. He is very underrated as far as the skills for his position, but I think he will help a team right away in a nickel/ dime package while he learns the mental consistency he needs to be a starting CB in the big leagues. Shawntee has the skills and ability to be a 1st round pick, but his lack of strength and mental consistency drops him to a late 2nd - early 3rd round status. Personally I would pick him no earlier than the 3rd round, but I can see someone picking him earlier based on a size/speed ratio.
