ESPN did a piece where they talked to NFL executives about every team’s draft. It should come as no surprise that the focus of the discussion surrounding the Titans draft is Jeffery Simmons. One executive loved the pick (from the above linked article):
“I would have taken that pick every day,” a GM said. “He is one of the top two players in this draft. His character does not scare me one bit.”
The piece says another GM called Simmons the best player in the draft.
It wasn’t all love, however:
“I’m less excited about Simmons,” this evaluator said.
