Isaiah Simmons projected as high as top-3 in pre-Combine mock drafts

The NFL combine invites are out and we're one step closer to April's NFL draft in Las Vegas.
"I refuse to list Simmons as a linebacker – he’s a defensive weapon," Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom said. "You don’t draft him to play a traditional off-ball role. You draft him to move him all over the place, erase opponents, and tick off opposing offensive coordinators."
Rotoworld's projection has Tee Higgins going at No. 22 and the Buffalo Bills.
A Bleacher Report mock is the highest on Higgins, at No. 13 to Indianapolis, with Simmons slipping to the Carolina Panthers at No. 7.
A top-5 pick for Simmons would be a second-straight top-5 selection from Brent Venables' defense (Clelin Ferrell, No. 4 to Oakland in 2019).
