Draft Profile: Bio
Julien Simon from Lincoln High School was rated a 4-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 4-star grade by 247 Sports. After high school, Simon joined USC after being heavily recruited.

In 2022 as a freshman Simon saw action in just one game and played a total of 8 snaps for the Trojans. He recorded no tackles, no assists, while adding no stops.

After season's end Simon transferred to Tulsa where as a sophomore for the Golden Hurricane in 2023 Simon played 12 games and took part in 540 snaps for the Golden Hurricane. He recorded 39 tackles, 18 assists, while adding 34 stops. In coverage Simon made one pass breakup, no interceptions, and a disapointing QB rating when targetted of 143.3. As a pass rusher, he chalked up 13 total pressures, and 7 QB hurries, 2 QB hits, and 4 sacks during the year.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Showed initial quickness and good flexibility to dip and bend. Simon has active hands and suddenness to his movements, demonstrating the ability to counter inside.
  • Has a quick burst off the line and times the snap well. Good upper-body strength and length to lock-out his opponent and at least moderate lateral agility to slide inside or spill out to contain.
  • Versatile enough to drop and could be viewed as a 3-4 linebacker.
  • He has an excellent motor and shows the stamina to last deep into the fourth quarter.
  • He plays bigger than his listed size, with the functional strength and motor to take on and hold ground against much bigger blockers.
  • Simon has the kind of turn-and-run fluidity to be used in man coverage as well, able to run with tight ends and running backs.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Simon remains a bit raw, as Simon is inconsistent with his hand use and lacks violence in his hands
  • While he moves well laterally, he doesn’t always get there in pursuit.
  • He lacks the speed of a chase and- tackle guy. Simon lacks twitch as a pass rusher and lacks the feet and flexibility to threaten around the edge.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
