That card looks good in the draft room” –— Warren Sharp (@SharpFootball) March 1, 2020If Simmons can be compared to anyone, maybe it’s Chargers All-Pro safety Derwin James.Go crazy @isaiahsimmons25‼️True story he was running 4.35’s electric when I seen him at @proactivesp training.— Derwin James Jr (@DerwinJames) March 1, 2020How did you feel about your performance today, Isaiah?— Isaiah Simmons (@isaiahsimmons25) March 1, 2020In case you forgot how good Simmons is on the field . . . 🔥 An absolutely filthy Joe Burrow RAN AWAY FROM the 4.39 40 LB Isaiah Simmons for a first down in the National Championship 💨— Warren Sharp (@SharpFootball) March 1, 2020Some of those #Clemson highlights from Isaiah Simmons after he clocked that wicked 4.39 40-yard dash. Needless to say, you can see the sick closing speed for a 6-3 238 pound linebacker/safety. Gotta believe the #Lions will give him a look at #3 overall.— Charles Robinson (@CharlesRobinson) March 1, 2020How high up in the draft can he rise? The Lions at No. 3 seems like the earliest, but the Giants are desperate for defensive playmakers and will be at No. 4.Isaiah Simmons should not go no lower than 4th overall. Just sayin 🤔😳— Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) March 1, 2020Isaiah Simmons (LB):- 6’4″ 238 lbs.- 39″ Vertical- 11’0″ Broad Jump- 4.39 40-Yard Dash 👀With the 4th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the #NYGiants select…— Giants Fans Online (@NYGFansOnline) March 1, 2020Some mock drafts predict a run on quarterbacks and offensive linemen in the top 10, which would allow the Raiders to scoop him up with the 12th pick. 4.39u 40-yard dash 🤯@ClemsonFB’s Isaiah Simmons got a reaction from @MikeMayock!📺: 2020 #NFLCombine on NFL Network— NFL Network (@nflnetwork) March 1, 2020After Simmons’ performance on Saturday, it seems more likely the Raiders would have to trade the 12th and 19th picks to move up if they want Simmons to be their guy. If hearing about the legend of Isaiah Simmons — Clemson’s do-everything defender — isn’t enough to leave an impression, then seeing his performance at the NFL Combine on Saturday should do the trick.Simmons’ storied college career included a national championship and a 29-game winning streak. He lined up at every level for the Tigers’ defense in 2019.last_img
