Projected first-round pick Jeffery Simmons injures knee
LINK If he's there in the second round do we grab him?

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.

I’d love to but ACL injuries are so common now I think some team will still nab him late first round. Or early second.

Wouldn't surprise me if he could make it back by middle of next season.

I think you have to draft even with the Drew Brees window closing. Late 2nd for a top 10-15 talent? Even if he had to sit out the whole year which isn’t likely, I still take him.

Agreed. He’s going to be a monster. Take him and don’t look back

I just wonder if the Saints have taken him off their board because of the incident. From what I can tell, it was out of character or he has matured into a good kid. But the Saints staff are big on high character guys now. I don’t know if he still has character concerns or not but if not, Saints would have to take him.

We might can take him with our 1st round compensation pick at the end of the round that Goodell needs to fork over to the Saints.

This board went nuts with Peat as a project, then lost their minds with Davenport as a late year starter. Would be glorious to see us use our 1 pick in the 1st 3 rounds for a guy that won’t play at all in 2019.

Jaylen Smith tore his ACL in the Fiesta bowl and fell to the second round when he should've been a top 10 pikc. Cowboys scooped him up and hes terrorizing offenses now

He’ll be gone before we pick. Prob to a team like Oakland who has a ton of picks & is rebuilding

If he falls to the second I'm trading up to get him!! Fetcher Cox clone.. he will be ready by the end of preseason to play

No he won’t. And I agree with Les. Don’t even get our hopes up. Someone in a rebuild like the Raiders or Dolphins will take him way before us. If they don’t some other team will. If he hadn’t had that injury he was going in the top 10-12. Still, this is a deep draft in some positions. There could be a really good player fall to us. I just don’t think that player will be Simmons.

A guy like Marquise Brown or Irv Smith could fall, though, especially a guy like Brown with so many other guys like Metcalf and Harry rising up the boards

It'll be someone with multiple first rd picks picking toward the end of the round.
