Eastern Kentucky defensive end Noah Spence visited the Redskins on Tuesday, a source confirmed to CSN.
Spence had 13.5 sacks and 22.5 tackles for loss last season after transferring to Eastern Kentucky from Ohio State, where he played in 2012 and 2013. The pass rusher was ruled ineligible for the 2014 season after a pair of failed drug tests, prompting him to transfer.
As a sophomore at Ohio State, Spence had 7.5 sacks, 14 tackles for loss, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Spence is listed at 6 foot 2, 251-pounds and would play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense.
Even with Ryan Kerrigan, Junior Galette, Preston Smith and Trent Murphy on the roster, it’s clear General Manager Scot McCloughan would like to bolster his team’s pass rush.
If teams are convinced that Spence’s off the field troubles are behind him, it's possible he could go in the mid-to-late first round. The Redskins, of course, pick at No. 21.
ESPN.com’s John Keim first reported Spence’s visit to Ashburn.
