Greg Powers Signing Day Evaluation: Simmons has prototype size to play in the middle of the defense and he is very instinctual. He is great coming downhill to stop the run and he is able to pursue the ball sideline-to-sideline with relative ease. He seems to always be one step ahead of the competition and in the right place to blow plays up.
