BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his freshman campaign. Totaled 41/697/11 as a senior after career-high numbers of 61/1077/16 in the previous year. All-Conference high-jumper and long-jumper on the track team.

POSITIVES: Fluid, smooth receiver with solid hands. Plays with excellent balance and body control and displays good eye/hand coordination. Extends to offer the quarterback a nice target and catches the pass away from his frame. Effortlessly makes the reception downfield, adjusting to the errant throw and snatching the ball from the air. Gets vertical, grabs the ball at its highest point, and easily out-jumps opponents.

NEGATIVES: Loping runner with marginal speed and poor route-running skills. Ineffective picking up yardage after the reception.

ANALYSIS: A graceful receiver who competes on the field, Simpson has the size and pass-catching skills to be a fourth wideout at the next level.
