Jasper Simmons Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||6'1 - 205 lbs.|
2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Jasper Simmons, FS, Missouri
The success during his first season in Columbia, Missouri gave everybody high hopes for Simmons in 2010. However, Simmons suffered an injury in the season opener against Illinois and missed the next three games. Later he was suspended for undisclosed disciplinary reasons. In the end, Simmons only started two games and saw action in just six. Despite playing in only half of the regular season games, Simmons was still very productive and ended up seventh on the team with 43 tackles.
Simmons is a big hitter and, at 6-1 and 205 pounds, has the size to be a free safety at the next level. He has good instincts and plays smart football, but his lack of production during his senior season has significantly dropped his stock. He will need to have some solid workouts to work his way back into the late rounds.
