2. Isaiah Simmons LB Clemson

The second prospect is arguably my favorite player to watch in the 2020 NFL Draft, Clemson defender Isaiah Simmons. Simmons is easily one of the most versatile football players, not just defenders, that I’ve ever seen.

With the ability to cover just about any offensive player, rush the passer, spy the QB, and make stops in the run game, Simmons is a fit in any scheme. No matter who’s calling the plays defensively, as long as they don’t try to keep Simmons is a box defensively and they let him move all around the field, I think he’ll have no issues succeeding.

The NY Giants have struggled to find a sideline-to-sideline linebacker ever since Antonio Pierce departed, so landing Simmons would be huge.
