USA Today ranked Justin Simmons as the No. 1 prospect at the East-West Shrine game. While that is a nice accolade, that doesn't necessarily translate into First Round Status. It has a decent history, but the Shrine Bowl is not the Senior Bowl. If Simmons plays well and impresses, he might move up some draft boards. However, other Draft followers don't have him rated as highly.
The Draft is more important that usual for BC this year. We need all the good publicity we can get and saying we help mid-level recruits like Simmons reach the NFL is still a great pitch.
