Titans Activate Jeffery Simmons

Recommended Posts

Simmons' best comp is easily Fletcher Cox.

 

Both came into the league at 6'4", 300 lbs, with exactly 34 and 1/2 inch arms. If you read the NFL.com scouting reports they basically describe both guys. To put it over the top both come into the NFL out of Mississippi State. it's literally a perfect comp.

He is just a freak. He is a big time playmaker with his ability to push the pocket and clog the middle of the line. Him and Brown both very good draft picks. Was a good draft when you count Davis and Hooker also. 

Even David Long made a play on defense today.

Look at every other defensive lineman, then look at Simmons.  This is what our defensive line has been lacking.  Just a mean mother fucker that's going to whip your ass.  Once he's fully healthy and playing more snaps, opposing offensive lineman are going to get worn down by him.

I see the Donald comparisons, I guess. But to me he's closer to Suh. He's just so strong. I don't think he's as quick as Donald. They have different builds. But Simmons looked like a man among boys out there. He made OL look silly. Even when they double teamed him, he was just standing there, occupying two blockers. Pretty amazing debut.

Donald wins with quickness and technique despite his size and strength. He looked closer to Big Al. Just a grizzly bear in there. 

 

TD thinks he's more like Fletcher Cox.

Dude he was punching the fuck out of those linemen. I bet they were shook when he hit em and just bowled em back. 

 

Here's what an idiot doc said during the game at 3:54pm

It"s hard to believe that the 18 teams before us were too stupid or risk adverse to pick him.  He looks like a generational type player, and the injury is thought provoking but in this day and age should not have been a major factor.  Who in the NFL would not take Luck #1 overall even if he had a ACL.  I don''t think there is any injury, other than a career ending one, that would have deterred me from taking Luck.  It will be interesting to  see how many busts are going to happen in the #1-18 players.  There are going to be a few GM's that are going to have a lot of explaining to do.  I'm glad we have a GM that would take the heat of picking an injured player with huge upside.  I remember reading that the Colts were going to take him if available at their pick.  it looks like JRob and  Chris Ballard are going to be going at it for years to come.  I hope QB picking by JRob is as good as this pick.

His draft slide due to his injury just looks stupid now.


Think about it like this: Had we drafted him without the injury, would we have won anything more than we have? I think we would have the exact same record. Maybe one more win at most. We got what seems to be a top 5 value at number 19. Would you trade one win to move into the top five to grab a potential All-Pro DT to be on a rookie contract for the next five years paid at the 19th slot salary?
