Historical perspective on Tennessee Titans rookie Jeffery Simmons

When the Tennessee Titans selected Jeffery Simmons, I was disappointed to say the least.

None of that doubt came from what I saw on the field though, it was the shroud of doubt surrounding the pick.

Despite playing a position with one of the lowest positional values in football (1-tech), Jeffery Simmons is a player that really grew on me during the draft process. At first I had him as a fringe first round pick because of his lack of sack production and his inconsistent pad level.

After going back and doing a positional review, it became really hard to put Christian Wilkins over him even considering his injury.
