Yes, Mississippi State defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons has some major question marks, including some off-field aggression and injury notes. But if we’re focusing solely on his on-field abilities and NFL potential, there’s little doubt the Seattle Seahawks would be getting a steal with a top-10 player this late on day one.
It’s likely Seattle re-signs EDGE Frank Clark this offseason, and the front seven would be even more potent with Simmons in tow, along with linebacker Bobby Wagner patrolling the second level.
The Seahawks could also look to find some promising defensive backs, and the offensive line is still far from perfect. Yet Simmons is too good to pass up here.
