I’m telling you guys, when they teach this guy the proper technique to 1 gap he’s going to be unstoppable. Right now he’s constantly engaging with the OL, or at least that’s what he did Sunday and all throughout his collegiate career. The burst is there though. You can see it. Teach him how to unleash and stop reading all of the time.

Very few of these early DL picks are anything like this kid.  Might be pre-mature but this kid has Reggie White traits.  He can forklift a guy but is also very athletic.  I remembered Casey had some flashes early (he is mostly explosive but has learned to get leverage) but it took him some time to develop some intricacies to his game to be as good as he is.  If Simmons does that he will be unblockable man on man.   He has quickness and strength.  Monstrous and explosive.  

And he is doing all this so far while being too high off the ball. If he starts coming off the ball lower he will be unstoppable. Right now his power and quickness are setting him up well. He's only going to get better.

Is that a soreness thing with the knee, or overall conditioning? I can imagine how sore his body was after the first game back.

Simmons played 45 defensive snaps and 9 ST snaps. 

 

He only had 2 tackles but was doubled a lot. He missed Casey

One of the TFL made by I can't remember who was made because Simmons blew up the line and diverted the RB to the outside. That's the only good play I can remember.

Simmons can't do it all, but he played fine. He gets double a lot, and as Oman noted, he needs Casey. Simmons was still pushing guys back, and he even stunted on a few plays, which was interesting. He's got a good burst, especially for his size.

 

As an aside, that Landry sack was something else.

I saw him against 3 guys atleast twice and like i said in the game thread the run d looks so much better with him. When we drafted him i wasnt very happy but even not looking like a world beater im happy.

Why in the hell were you not happy about the Simmons pick?

When watching possible picks i look for something dominating. I saw solid but not overwhelming play from him.

I will never hide from what iv said and that is why I admitted 2 my mistake.

That's surprising. His college tape POPS. OTOH, if you watched full games or saw his stats in college, you could come away underwhelmed. Opposing teams keyed in on him a good bit. He got TRIPLE teamed in college in many cases (and KC did it too!). But he still made plays. The guy has generational upside. No homer, but total homo from me.

Actually we may be smart to consider a CB in the first if the right one is there.  And by the way D. Jones has been playing at a very high level this year so far. 

 

Jones has been playing mostly Nose Tackle, we need a DE opposite of Simmons. Unfortunately, Casey is starting to rack up the injuries the past couple years.

Corner is a sneaky big area of need.
