Projected first-round Mississippi State defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons suffered a brutal workout injury.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Simmons tore his ACL doing a routine drill during a workout, per a source informed of the situation. The DT will undergo surgery.
ESPN first reported the injury.
The 21-year-old racked up 157 tackles, seven sacks, four forced fumbles and six passes defended in three seasons at Mississippi State and was projected as a top-10 pick by some draft analysts earlier this offseason.
The injury will likely sink Simmons' value further.
