Urban Meyer Raves About Noah Spence, Was "Shocked" He Didn't Go In 1st Round

Urban Meyer talks about the draft.


Former Ohio State defensive end Noah Spence did not hear his name called during the first round of the NFL Draft Thursday night. 

This surprised Spence's former coach, Urban Meyer. 

Spence, who played at OSU for two seasons before having to transfer because of failed drug tests, is an "elite" defensive end, according to Meyer. The Ohio State coach placed him in a similar category to Joey Bosa, who was taken No. 3 overall. 

"I was kind of shocked he didn't go yesterday," Meyer said on the NFL Network.

Meyer also talked about how Spence was a 3.0 student at Ohio State and comes from a great family.

The NFL Draft is currently airing on ESPN and the NFL Network. Spence is expected to go early in the second round.
