The draft will continue Saturday with rounds four through seven, starting at noon.
The Steelers consider Spence an inside linebacker although he played on the outside at Miami. He is 5-11, 231 pounds. He started 40 games at Miami over four seasons.
"You look at James Farrior, he played the last four, five years at 230 pounds, maybe 225," said Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler.
