Biography: Junior college transfer and two-year starter. Senior totals included 33/2/8 after 62/4/14 as a junior.
Positives: Adequate college cornerback coming off a disappointing senior season. Fluid pedaling in reverse, displays a good break to the throw and a burst of closing speed. Effective backed off the line or facing the action. Shows a nice sense of timing and anticipation.
Negatives: Slow getting his head back around and locating the pass in man coverage. Marginally productive last season.
Analysis: After a terrific junior campaign, Simmons fell short of expectations last year and went from potential late round choice to free agent. He has the skills to be used in a zone system if he gets his game back on track.
