Colts were picking at about 25 last year and traded back into the early 2nd from there. Simmons went 19 overall I believe so we would have had to trade up to get him. If Ballard truly loved him that much he would have moved up 7 spots to get him.
And I'm just going off of what I've watched from him since I can easily watch Titans games. Yes he is super strong and stout. But when it comes to quickness and speed for a DT, he doesn't have what Kinlaw or Brown does. I saw a highlight of Brown out in coverage for a play and he made the tackle. I've never seen Simmons have that kind of speed for a big guy.
I still believe Big Q will get the better of Simmons on most occasions in our yearly battles with the Titans.
Thanks East. I’d definitely do that 13, 44, & 75 deal. One more question for you though. I think Ballard will be reluctant to part with both 13 & 34. But I think he would be willing to part with 13 & next year’s first. Also, JB has a history with the Giants organization. Could we include him in the package (he’d make a great backup for Jones). How would this year’s & next year’s first plus JB or our later 2nd matchup in a trade for 4?
