There is now way in hades this kid is sitting there at 7.    Okudah maybe but no way Simmons is.

I have my doubts also.  Its not always about who the better player is, its about fit and what those drafting value the most.

Who is DG more likely to draft? A LB or CB?

Who is RR more likely to draft? A LB or CB?

and before someone says Simmons is more of a safety, it doesn't matter what we think.  They might convince themselves he can be the most athletic and impactful LB in the league.

If Tua is there at #7, honestly it's a big red flag. He shouldn't be and you have to ask yourself why if it happens.

You can ask that question but everyone already knows it’s because injury. It would be a great fit for us if he’s at 7 (no chance that happens). He has a full year to learn the playbook, get 100% healthy, and transition to the NFL. Tua in Brady’s offense.... fire

We already have a better version of him in Shaq no need to get a lb at 7 we can find one in the later rounds . He’s no Luke and not even close to being

Thing is, Simmons can do a lot of things but he needs a defensive mind to utilize him to his fullest. If we draft him do you see a guy like Snow doing more than line Simmons up at WLB with occasional Saftey rotation?

Somewhat agree. But having watched him for a couple of years I think if he was tasked with concentrating on what position he would be great at that as well. I think he is THE can't miss in the draft.

Our DL was absolutely awful last year and we’ve downgraded big time from that unit.  Games are won at the line of scrimmage, so let’s use our high draft pick on an undersized LB.  Also, LOL at whoever said there are DTs just as good as brown later in the draft.  Brown may be the best player in the entire draft regardless of position and many Auburn and Alabama fans who have watched him the last couple of years would agree.

Okudah will be there.

I agree that Simmons won’t. Everyone just assumes Detroit replaces Slay with Okudah but Simmons would make a lot more of a difference for them. 

I still think Gettleman goes OL/DL due to his love for hog mollies but he did also draft Shaq. 

San Diego could pair Simmons with James and that would be one hell of a playmaking combo on D with Bosa and Ingram up front. 

I just don’t see him being there at 7 either.

If this was true the 49ers would be SB champs. Times have changed.

The trenches are important but having playmakers on the backend of your defense is just as/if not more important.

If Simmons can be Derwin James, and we have a creative enough DC to get him to that type level, I would be good with this pick, as long as the T's had already been picked through.

My wishes are as such.

Best LT in the draft.

Okuda.

Best OT in the draft.

Simmons.

But he can only play one position at a time. Also, I'm not sure Phil Snow qualifies as an "innovative defensive mind."

Everytime I pick Simmons in a draft simulator it gets really hard to find a good DL and CB.  I really think think DL and CB need to be the first 2 rounds

Would be right with the history of the franchise.  

We like linebackers here in the Carolinas.

    • Take this stuff to the TB. Our COVID response (or lack thereof) clearly has unavoidable political tie-ins, but the course of this conversation is pure TB territory.

    • I am a Cam fan, big time, but I do believe with all that transpired, it was time to move on. I only think they moved on because of Teddy being available, having Brady as the OC who knew Teddy and not knowing if Cam can return close to what he was. Also factoring in that if you sink a large sum of cap space to one player, then 4 to 5 guys can take up half your cap when you need to sign 53 players.  The past problems is not Rivera, not even Hurney but with Richardson. He ruled and ran the team/company. All moves are OK'd from the top, including over paying on a player. Gentlemen was the first to challenge that and start to do things different and helped get us close to winning a SB.  Everything Jourdan is saying is true as Cam is not injury prone, just had a couple of bad injuries. Heck, he was in a car crash, broke 2 bones in his back and only missed 1 game. He's a freaking machine. If we won the SB or even the 1st game in 2016 in Denver (which was bullshit the hits Cam took), this team and where it goes from there is different.  It was time, with a new staff and a system that's not entirely about a specific player, it's the next step to building a long term winner, year after year.  I really like and support the common sense approach Tepper is taking. He's been successful in business and has been around the football business side with the Steelers. He's spending money on the little things that help build consistency, like a practice dome, etc. In 2 years you will all be happily jumping on the train.
