2016 Draft: Rnd 3 Pick 35
Justin Simmons and Will Johnson both are 6-foot-3 defensive backs who showed high-end ball skills while lining up at safety and receiver. They also both played basketball – Simmons averaged a double-double at Stuart (Fla.) Martin County as a 2012 prospect. Simmons ultimately settled in as a safety at Boston College before becoming one of the better players at the position in the NFL. It remains unseen where Johnson will end in the secondary up long-term.
