Our latest 2020 seven-lap model is an attempt at what it might look like.
Rebuilding Carolina's defense without Luke Kuechly in the middle will be Marty Hurney's biggest challenge this year. Adding a piece like Simmons (6 feet 4 inches, 230 pounds) that can wear as many hats could make a huge difference. In college, Simmons queued everywhere. According to Pro Football Focus, he made more than 100 snaps in five different places: linebacker, linebacker, split wedge, reinforced safety and free safety. Auburn iDL Derrick Brown is a strong prospect to consider at No. 7, but no other defender in this class can match the value and versatility of Simmons.
