He would be a TERRIBLE OLBer….but a good DE.
Simon is an athletic freak and productive player, but his real value is his intangibles. Urban Meyer has two jerseys hanging in his office…
Tim Tebow's and John Simon's.
His intentions would be for Simon to play RDE not LBer.. I really like Simon, he's a lunch pail blue collar kind of guy who I really like. And I think Elway, Fox, and JDR covet those type of players as well!
