NFL Network host compares Simmons to LeBron James

Thursday on “Good Morning Football”, NFL Network’s weekday morning football talk show, the crew discussed the defensive rookies they are most excited to see in 2020.

One of the co-hosts, Kyle Brandt, named former Clemson star and current Arizona Cardinals linebacker Isaiah Simmons as the first-year defender he can’t wait to watch this season.

“Why do I want to see Isaiah Simmons? Because we see guys come into the league and they get really flattering comps,” Brandt said. “‘This guy reminds me of a young Luke Kuechly, a Jevon Kearse.’ Like, great players.
