Eastern Kentucky LB Noah Spence is hoping to hear his name called early in this year's NFL Draft. The one-time blue-chip recruit and former Ohio State Buckeye has apparently come a long way since being banned by the Big Ten after failing multiple drug tests at OSU. 

According to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter, Spence is determined to prove his commitment to staying clean. Schefter says Spence has sent his last 20 drug tests since May 2015 to all 32 NFL franchises this week.

This news is a further positive sign for Spence, whose career was seemingly derailed after his Big Ten ban in November 2014. 

Last season, Spence recorded 63 tackles, including 22.5 for loss, while also racking up 11.5 sacks and 15 QB hurries for Eastern Kentucky. He's a likely first-round pick tomorrow night.
