John Simon, our 121st ranked defensive end, is best suited to
be a primary backup. We project he will end up with the Jacksonville Jaguars because they
could use a player of this quality after losing Adam Gotsis for an extended period of time. The Jaguars
currently have 4 healthy defensive ends, and 2 are
rated better than Simon: (Dawuane Smoot and Henry Mondeaux).
The Jaguars currently have no
defensive ends under contract beyond the 2027 season,
so Simon may only be getting a short term deal, considering his age, with the team.
