Difficult questions ahead after Titans draft Jeffery Simmons 19th

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Jeffery Simmons should ultimately bring the Titans a very good defensive lineman.

But first, the 19th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft will bring a bunch of questions:SimmonsTwitter

How long will it take his knee to be healthy? He tore his left ACL in February training and will not be ready until well into the season, which would wind up a redshirt deal.

And how will he and the franchise that chose him explain an ugly 2016 incident that resulted in him being found guilty of malicious mischief and pleading no contest to simple assault?


They are two issues teams generally want to avoid – bringing in an injured player and one who’s got a record.

But big talent overcomes such things, and that’s what is happening here.

We’ll hear from Jon Robinson and Mike Vrabel shortly, and then we’ll have a conference call with Simmons a while after that. Stray tuned to Twitter and PaulKuharsky.com for more.
