Eastern Kentucky linebacker Noah Spence has sent his past 20 drug tests to all 32 NFL teams, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Spence was banned by the Big Ten after multiple positive drug tests while playing at Ohio State. Ahead of this week’s NFL draft, Spence wants to prove to teams that he has cleaned up his act.
Schefter reports that Eastern Kentucky conducted five drugs tests on Spence from May through December. Spence also had an independent drug-testing company conduct 15 additional tests from January up until this week.
Despite his problematic history, Spence is expected to be selected early in the draft. Sports Illustrated’s Chris Burke projects that Spence will be selected in the first round by the Buffalo Bills.
