Jeffery Simmons didn’t exactly have the easiest ramp-up period to his first NFL season.
The defensive tackle who was a surefire top-10 pick tore his ACL in February 2019 while training in preparation for the draft, causing teams to shy away from him. He landed in Tennessee via the 19th-overall selection, making it back in time to appear in nine games, record 32 tackles (four for loss) and two sacks. He also added 13 total pressures, per Pro Football Focus.
“I know I am moving around pretty good, and my body is feeling good,” Simmons said. “I am feeling great, and now I am getting ready for Week One vs. the Broncos. And that is my main focus: How can I keep getting better as a player, and as a teammate? … I am just trying to stay focused, and do what I can.”
