Former Clemson football star Isaiah Simmons dropped a golden quote ahead of the 2020 NFL draft.

Simmons is expected to be one of the first players taken off of the board Thursday night when the draft gets underway and he seems very aware of his versatility. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

During an appearance on the NFL Network, the talented linebacker said, “You only get 53 on a roster. I feel like if you draft me, you get 56.”

Simmons is an absolutely fascinating prospect and there’s a reason general managers and coaches around the league are salivating over him.

He’s lethal against the rush, and can play linebacker, blitz from the outside, line up as a defensive end, pressure the quarterback and do just about anything else you need him to do.

The man is a toolbox on the field. The man’s highlights are pure football porn.

I don’t really see any situation where he falls out of the top 10. I don’t see it happening at all. He’s just way too talented.

The dude is built like a brick house and runs a sub-4.40 40-yard dash time!

Simmons is going to be a weapon in the NFL and I have no doubt about that at all. The question now is where he lands. There’s a real chance he could go as high as three, but he’s not dropping out of the top 10. I’m confident in that.

Tune in Thursday night to find out where the former Clemson star goes!
