We traded up out of the 2nd round to 28 to get Spencer.
If you draft a player in the 1st he should be ready to start and especially at 14.
I agree it takes time it takes some time for most NFL rookies even top draft picks. But that does not mean you pay Spencer as a top OLB. If Dallas can bring him back at a reasonable deal great if not then you look at the bigger picture not just next year.
