How will former Bulldog Jeffery Simmons take the Tennessee Titans’ defense a level higher?

NFL: AFC Divisional Round-Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

As Mississippi State has and continues to produce elite defensive talent, former Bulldog defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons has become a household name in Tennessee.

A perfect fit with the Titans, Simmons is now the primary face of the defensive line. At 6-foot-4, Simmons’ height advantage makes him an immediate mismatch. That, in addition to a quick first step, creates multiple issues for the opposition.

In 2020, Simmons recorded 49 total tackles along with three sacks. Whether it be at tackle or edge, Simmons’ versatile skillset fits the modern game. In large part due to his play and expectations, look for the Titans’ defense to be regarded as one of the game’s best. Big things to come from Simmons.

Hail State!
