The Tennessee Titans selected defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons out of Mississippi State with the 19th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Simmons was considered a top-10 talent, but is coming off a knee injury and was involved in a physical altercation with a woman when in high school, which pushed him down draft boards.
It's uncertain how much Simmons will be able to play during his rookie season after tearing his ACL in mid-February.
When healthy, Simmons should give Tennessee a dominant inside duo with Pro Bowler Jurrell Casey.
School: Mississippi State
Weight: 305 lbs
Simmons has his fair share of red flags as a prospect, but he's flashed dominance on tape in a competitive SEC. The defensive lineman has ideal measurables and thrives against the run and pass. With a bit of patience, Simmons can develop into a top-tier defensive tackle due to his diverse pass-rush repertoire, gap penetration skills, and excellent use of hands. He'll likely be selected in the first round despite his recent injury.
