Projected first-round pick Jeffery Simmons injures knee
LINK

quote:

Former Mississippi State defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons, a projected first-round pick in the NFL draft, suffered a knee injury during training that is thought to be a torn ACL, league sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen.

A statement to offer clarity on Simmons' injury is expected to be released later Tuesday, according to Schefter and Mortensen.

Simmons was rated as the No. 12 overall draft prospect in the latest big board from ESPN's Mel Kiper, and he was projected to be the No. 7 overall pick by the Jaguars in ESPN draft expert Todd McShay's latest mock draft.

A top prospect coming out of high school, Simmons was captured on video hitting a woman; the incident took place before Simmons arrived at Mississippi State. He later pleaded no contest to simple assault.

That sucks. I wonder what he was doing and who was training him. It will be interesting to see what his stock does.

As opposed to what, staying home and getting fat?

It's the logical conclusion of the taking off from football trend.

Pretty sure the combine didn’t invite him due to the video incident

The fact that it even makes sense to you makes the conversation not even worth having.

I was unaware that he wasn't invited. Gotta love the moral posturing by the NFL.

What’s the point of bringing up that incident in high school?

Like what’s the point of this in a story unless they’re trying to get hits?

The knee injury is only part of the story. There’s a bigger picture involved. How will this injury impact his draft stock?

In addition to his injury, he also has an assault against a female in his past. Red flags are accumulating for this guy.
