First Round

Comparison

Jeffery Simmons Tennessee Titans

Possesses a square-shouldered, well-proportioned athletic build with a developed lower body and strong base. Has added substantial weight over his last year of high school and could project inside long-term as a result. Is a multi-sport athlete as a longtime AAU basketball player who is talented enough to play hoops at the college level. Dominates on both sides of the ball for a high school football program that wins a state championship every season in South Carolina’s private school league. A flexible, fluid athlete, Burch has the framework to play multiple spots along the line at the next level both on the edge and inside. He plays with outstanding bend and leverage, with the ability to dip and run the arc off the edge. Has a high level first step and play speed in pursuit. Doubles as a strong, physical run defender and looks to play with a high effort level. Flashes his considerable athleticism as a running back, moving with high level explosiveness and fluidity for a prospect of his size. Though he receives outstanding coaching at Hammond, he rarely if ever sees college-level talent on Friday nights. The competition he faces in South Carolina's private school league is quite poor. He looks to be the next up from South Carolina, a state that annually produces top-ranked defensive linemen. As a result, he is a bit undeveloped with his ability to disengage from blocks relative to other top defensive linemen. Still has a high upside, but may need some time to adjust to the considerable uptick in talent level from his high school to the types of offensive linemen he'll face in the Power Five. Has the potential to develop into an all-league, All-American type player with the upside of a first-round pick.
