What was it like playing for the Best D in the country however team finished with no wins in the ACC how frustrating was that?
It was obviously really frustrating. All the right pieces came together on Defense there were a lot of times it couldn’t get it done. Despite the team I love the season if you look back. All though we were 3-9 we weren’t a bad a 3-9 4 or 5 loses under 5 points. As much as Id like to bolster up how great we were a lot of things we could of done better. Huge accomplishment of D. Huge Coach Brown.
Best attritubute on the field
My tackling open field, settng the edge, fill a whole depending on the scheme.
Middle the field, high safety cover 1 read the coverage, track down the ball on cover 1. That is what seperates me.
Area of improvement
I can improve a lot of off coverage
Very aggressive, a lot of one on one coverage scenarios. My press man, I feel like I need to improve on that since we didn't play it much at BC.
Also, my overall explosiveness in my hips.
Best WR you faced in college?
While at BC for four years it was probalby Devonte Parker from Louisville.
This year senior season – WR – one on one – Artavius Scott or Chris Brown ND. Both those guys were very difficult to cover. Great players.
What NFL Player would you compare yourself to?
Eric Weddle, in terms of intelligence and how he reacts to the ball/plays
What one thing people might not know about Justin simmons
One thing off the field, how into my faith I am. I always have a cross under my eye. It may not stand out. I am really into my relationship with God.Its been pretty neat to see this aspect of my life grow. I think mainly my GF now fiancé was a huge part of my faith, she really got me into it.
When it came to getting to know god, I hit a lul I was getting looked at a few schools, I felt I was underrated and took that a found a relationship with god and came to grips with god. I shouldn’t go through to life trying to please people. I could always fail in that standard. With God he loves me know matter what happens. God loves you no matter what. That hit me hard senior year freshmen year college.
If I was an NFL GM why would I want Justin on my team
Besides all the football accolades, being a great player, tackler, great at high safety cover 1. I also bring to the program the sense you wont have to worry about me. I wont be the one getting in trouble. I will always being doing the right thing on and off the field. Faith in God. If that’s the one thing. Guy put up the numbers. Does the right off the field higher standard
