John Simon has no position in the NFL....

video of Simon's sack yesterday...to go with three tackles...

Not saying he'll be an NFL beast, but the Ravens are a smart organization, and they thought he was worth a 4th rounder...

They got a steal.

Dude has a motor that doesn't stop.

Ravens know how to draft talent, and that's why they're champions.

I'm really tired of Buckeye D-linemen being drafted by other AFCN teams. I want to be able to root for them, even if they don't play for the Browns.

Gah.

I still want to see where he ends up playing. I don't dislike Simon, I am just worried about his ability to work in coverage as an OLB and his size as a 3-4 end. 4-3 would be a better set up for him, but his attitude, motor and work ethic are such that I would not bet against him being successful.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

SImon was drafted where he should have went, no bones about it.

It was the Simon in round two talk that annoyed me. It was of the same family as the Sullinger in the top five talk.

Raven or not, i'd probably crack a smile if he came off the edge and just destroyed Weeden.

I root for Buckeyes, no matter the pro jersey they wear.
