    I obviously don't condone what he did. He lost his composure when a family member was being attacked, he should have known better, but it's easier for me to say that when it's not my sister being attacked, etc.

    That being said, if everything they are saying is true about him completely turning things around, and being involved with the community and such, then he's doing everything he can on his part to try and show everyone that's not truly who he is.

    I hope he can make a full recovery from his injury, and can help us when he gets back!

    I thought this video was awkward! JRob almost looks pissed!

    The presser just now was pretty good though. Amy Adams had Simmons bawling his eyes out with the words she said about him.

    From Sports Illustrated....

    The Titans’ selection of Jeffery Simmons was one of the most interesting of Day 1, and Tennessee absolutely went over the top in researching the Mississippi State star defensive lineman. GM Jon Robinson, VP of player personnel Ryan Cowden, and college scouting director Jon Salge all have deep connections at the school—all three were assigned to the Mississippi State as area scouts in their younger years. And head coach Mike Vrabel has a strong relationship with ex-Bulldogs coach Dan Mullen through Meyer, whom both men worked for. Mullen recruited Simmons to Starkville, through the ugly incident where Simmons struck a woman (and was caught on video) as a high schooler, and coached him in 2016 and ’17. What came back to the Titans brass was what you heard across the NFL the last few months. As bad as the early 2016 incident was, Simmons became as good a kid as MSU had in its program the last three years. And if this works out, after Simmons’s ACL heals, the Titans are getting a guy that many considered to be in the Nick Bosa/Quinnen Williams category, based on his game tape.

    So you think all the draft coverage of Simmons should be about negative things that happened 3 years ago and not actually show any highlights of his play?

    Don’t you think there are many Titans fans who don’t know him as a player and might want to see what they are getting ON THE FIELD?

    By the sounds of it he regrets what he did, went on to MS and excelled, was a good student, teammate, football player. Was a positive person the community.

    If he didn't tear his ACL he would be going top 5.
    I'm glad we got him at 19...hope he continues on the right path and takes full advantage of the 2nd chance he's been given

    Yeah I am on that boat. I don't know much at all about the kid and all they did was show highlights of the beating.

    It's absurd they acted like it was their obligation to show the video. I can see it now next year:

    "Sam Fitzgerald out of USC to the Raiders. What do you got for us Mel?"

    "Well he failed his freshman chemistry class, and I have a detention slip here from where he punched a student and got ISS in the 6th grade."

    "Interesting. Sounds like a reach. On to the Packers."
