Positive: Explosive college pass rusher who makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage. Quick off the snap with a nice first step, fluid changing direction, and shows ability pursuing the action to the sidelines. Effectively redirects to the ball carrier, can immediately alter his angle of attack, and displays explosion in his all-around game.
Negative: Undersized, easily controlled at the point of attack, and gets engulfed by blockers too often.
Analysis: Simmons showed flashes of being a big-time pass rusher the past two seasons but lacks the size to be anything other than either a weak side linebacker or situational pass rusher in the NFL."
