Simmons is not really a LB.
Simmons lines up all over the defense. He is Jabrill Peppers but bigger faster and better. the idea with Simmon sis that he opens up the playbook.
He is the ultimate Joker. You line him up as a MLB he pretends to rush the passer and then he drops to deep safety. Or he lines up in the slot then drops to the flat OR rushes as the edge rusher on that play...... Or he lines up at Free safety then he moves into Middle LB. If you can think of it. Simmons can do it....
Kenenth Murray is an excellent MLB but he isn't covering like a cb 1 on 1 or playing free safety etc.
Kenneth Murray however is a much better MLB than Simmons, right now. So if they draft Simmons and simply line him up at MLB every snap, that will be a bad idea.
Simmons cannot shed a block or set an edge. Not many LB in college can actually but simmons is not that type of player. Simmons is a finesse type of player. He is a Free or Strong safety more than anything if you ask me.
He is the ultimate Joker. He has the run and tackle skill set. sideline to side line PLUS. He can cover anyone. He can roam anywhere.
So kenneth Murray is not going to cover RB, TE and WR like Simmons can. But Simmons is not going to stack and shed like hopefully presumably a MLB like Kenneth murray can.
