    Strong Points: Adequate size, athleticism. Plays hard every snap. Flashes as a run defender and pass rusher. Chases in pursuit.

    Weak Points: Average instincts -- too often unaware of where the ball is. Very average as a pass rusher (2 sacks in '18). Gets tall, letting blockers into his body. Average hand use and can be slow to shed.

    The Way We See It: Simmons declared despite being an unknown. He was too easily blocked on the tapes I evaluated. Average pass rusher who isn't disruptive in the run game. On the plus side, Simmons is athletic, hard working and has some growth potential -- he should get stronger in an NFL weight program. I project him as a backup 5-technique at the next level.
