Overview:

Simmons has good size, and good speed. He was a ball hawk, and a tackling machine for Boston College. He is very experienced, is good in coverage, and is a hard hitter. On the other side, he gets run over by big backs at times, and does not always take the right angle on tackle attempts. With that said, I expect Simmons to be a day 3 pick.
