The staff I think took into account this was best case scenario in choosing Brown with the 1st pick.
Brown seems like a smart kid and having a guy like Spencer as opposed Salaam nipping at your heels is way bigger motivation.
Well have at ya then. I'm expecting Spencer to back-up any Oline spot except Center to be honest. I think until he proves that he can move around again on his bum leg, that he's probably going to be behind Salaam in the depth charts at the tackle position but he could rise up. I don't expect him to make any starts whatsoever, and only see limited amounts of snaps as a backup until he gets his feet under him more as the season goes along.
I hope yours come true, but I don't think guys come off of 2 year long rehab stints to go to the Pro Bowl.
