Reminds Us Of

Jeffery Simmons Tennessee Titans

Physical at the point of attack, plays low and with leverage and strikes at his blocker when bull-rushing. Physical hitter who can get to the quarterback but also stuff the run in an instant. Had good tenacity and disruptive at the line of scrimmage. Can line up off the edge or move inside and use his first step to gain an advantage. Needs to continue to add an arsenal of moves. Projects as multi-year Power 5 starter and third-day NFL draft selection.
