    Whoa! Dion Simms compared to Anthony Gates !!!

    As a Michigan alum, I don't really like MSU guys but my heart has warmed up to him of late. This guy is a match-up nightmare much like the Patsies use Gronk. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ka9V1qvZYAQ

    Dion is a player Im really excited about. he was a monster at 280, cant wait to see how much quicker he is at 260. he has great hands for a big guy

    i wanted eifert all day but didnt look much at this guy. i am very intrigued with this pick and he will be a secret weapon in red zone. Love his block and release that will disguise looks.

    Tannehill has one more guy to gameplan with for sure. love the pick and him slimming down makes it even better. he will soon be loving life imo.
    the fake handoffs at goaline and quick hit to TE will be to this guy where Keller will be more downfield this year.

    this guy is way under radar. big upside on blocking. priority #1 for coaches early, then late season he will shine. vs. pats would be nice.

    I really wanted to draft Tyler Eifert....but if Sims works out for us and can be like Gates, minus his injuries, I could live with that.

    No Doubt size-wise he is a complete match-up nightmare. However, I gotta ask what was his 40 time? The guy looks very very slow..

    He ran a 4.75 which at his size is pretty impressive. I don't know that I've seen that speed on the field though.

    I a excited about how soft his hands are. At 6'6" 270lbs with a 35" beer an those soft hands he could make a great redzone weapon. And that is something we've been lacking for quite some time

    4.75 was his official time at the combine. You won't see that speed on the field because he played at 280 last season. He dropped to 262 for the combine and if he can maintain that weight then I think we'll see more speed and quickness from him on the field this season. It will be interesting to see how he does this season though. He has good hands, seems to have a knack for finding the soft spots in zones but I'm interested to see if the loss of weight will equal better after catch ability.

    Would have been better if he was compared to Antonio Gates

    Seriously though Sims could a great pick by Ireland!
