Clemson’s Isaiah Simmons is the perfect modern-day linebacker | College Football and NFL Draft | PFF

Considering Judge’s desire scheme and personnel flexibility, a chess piece like Simmons could be in play for the Giants with the fourth overall pick in the draft.

PFF’s Michael Renner writes:

Of all the linebackers to come out in the last half-decade since we started grading college players at PFF, no one has displayed a more versatile skillset than Clemson’s Isaiah Simmons. Standing 6-foot-4, 230 pounds, Simmons might as well have been created in a lab to play defense in today’s NFL. He can go from rushing off the edge to off-ball to the slot and deep safety seamlessly from play to play. He is of the new Derwin James/Jamal Adams hybrid defender mold, only in a larger package. ...

Simmons’ ability to blur the linebacker/safety positional designation is going to be a defensive coordinator’s best friend at the next level. Simmons is the definition of what you want in a modern linebacker.
