Kinda weird how the article bounces between obscure guys and pro bowlers. I mean Joe Thomas, really?
If we're going with "pretty good players that casual fans don't know about", I'd say someone like Moncrief, Mewhort, Doyle, Langford, or Anderson.
I don't think Spence is a great choice. If he was so good Tennessee would have retained him considering how thin they are at the position as well. Rattling off some arbitrary stat then saying "this got him noticed" is a pretty lame point to make considering we're desperate for ILBs and only gave him 1 yr / 2.5 mil. I'm thinking the author was struggling to come up with someone for us so he just went with Spence (who wasnt even on our roster last season)
