Draft 2016

Pick No.98

Selected By: Denver Broncos

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 36 (98)

Pick Analysis: Not only is Simmons an all-conference performer for the Eagles, but he's already looking forward to a coaching career after his playing days, working with kids in the Pop Warner program. He might have to wait a while before keeping a whistle around his neck, however, because of his length and versatility. Simmons started off his collegiate career strong, starting seven games as a true freshman (six at free safety, one at cornerback), making 52 tackles, one interception, and four pass breakups. He stepped back a bit as a sophomore (no starts, 34 tackles, three pass break-ups), but got back into the groove in 2014, starting all 13 games, the first six at free safety, final six at cornerback due to injuries at the position. Simmons actually led the team that season with 76 tackles and two interceptions, while breaking up five passes. He capped off his career with a second team all-conference effort in 2015, leading the team with five interceptions as a full-time starter at free safety.
