Simmons is arguably the most versatile player in the class, listed as a linebacker but capable of playing all over the defense. He was used in a variety of spots the past two years with the Tigers:
He finished 2019 with 104 tackles, eight sacks, three interceptions and eight passes defended.
This has helped him become one of the top prospects in the class, ranked No. 4 overall by Bleacher Report's Matt Miller.
Though he can't literally add three more spots to the roster, his versatility will give his next team a lot of options defensively.
