Kwon Alexander loves the Noah Spence pick for the Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers just drafted Eastern Kentucky defensive end Noah Spence to get after the passer, and middle linebacker Kwon Alexander loves that move. It's not often you see players publicly telling their general managers they appreciate the moves they're making.

He's not the only player who likes what the Bucs did there. Jameis Winston vouched for Spence off the field just a few days ago, and Alterraun Verner certainly liked it.

Former general manager Mark Dominik has zero off-field concerns about Spence as well.

Still, some teams are concerned about Spence. He didn't fall to the second round because he's squeaky clean off the field: he got kicked out of Ohio State for abusing ecstacy a couple years ago, though he's done everything he could to show that that's no longer an issue. Even his former head coach still has plenty of good things to say about him, though.

So hey, it's all good right now. We'll see if that holds up in the long run, but there's not much to complain about at this point in time.
