Overview

Isaiah Simmons is the prototypical sideline to sideline NFL linebacker every team now wants - he has the rare length, athletic ability, and natural football instincts to become a true impact defender at the next level. His coverage ability is elite for the position - he is built to defend against the high speed, spread style offenses taking the league by storm. He will be Top 10 (maybe even Top 5) pick.

Isaiah Simmons Scouting Report

vs. Ohio State 2019 (CFB Playoff)

  • Fluid movement - not choppy pursuing the ball or while in coverage
  • Will run an excellent 40 yard dash
  • Very comfortable in coverage
  • Elite burst makes him a very effective blitzer
  • Some undisciplined moments as a tackler
  • PLAYMAKER - his INT in 3rd quarter was a turning point in the game
  • Did more in coverage than he did as a tackler
  • Type of player who can cover TEs and WRs out of the slot with great success

vs. Virginia 2019

  • Not fooled by trick plays
  • Effort as a tackler can be spotty - sometimes chooses not to get dirty
  • Understands angles
  • Impressive in coverage
  • Super athletic for a human being his size
  • Imagine he will be a fun player for a defensive coordinator to build a defense around

Best Team Fits

  • Giants: The Giants have a bleak LB unit - Simmons would change that fast.
  • Dolphins: Miami needs an impact defender and Simmons is exactly that.
  • Panthers: Why not replace Luke Kuechly with the best LB in the draft class?
  • Cardinals: Another team that needs an infusion of impact talent on defense.
