Spruce has good size, was highly productive for Colorado, a touchdown machine, and a deep threat. He is also sure handed, and a solid pass catcher. However he does not have burner speed, and he needs to a better job of getting enough yards. With that said, I expect Spruce to be picked in the 5th round range.
