I don't think Simmons or Ingram is some kind of franchise savior. Simmons is a great fit as a 4 in the modern NBA though because he can guard inside and on the perimeter, rebound, handle the ball like a guard, and score inside. Even if he never develops a reliable jumper, he is still going to be a very valuable player. I see him as a better version of Draymond Green who can create offense on his own much better than Green.
These are the school's prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft by status * - denotes 2014 prospect ** - denotes 2015 prospect.

David Bakhtiari*, OT, Colorado
Height: 6-4. Weight: 299. Arm: 34.08. 40 Time: 5.09. Projected Round (2013): 2-3. 4/13/13: Bakhtiari was a solid player for Colorado, but is an undersized tackle for the NFL. Considering he won't be a first-round pick, he probably should've gone back to school for his senior year. Bakhtiari probably thought he accomplished everything he could in college after starting the past three seasons. Bakhtiari started 33 games and was an All-Pac-12 selection. He had a good showing at the Combine and looks like a second-day pick. Some teams may want to move him to guard or center.
Nick Kasa, TE, Colorado
Height: 6-6. Weight: 271. Arm: 32 1/8. Hand: 9. 40 Time: 4.71. Projected Round (2013): 3-4. 4/13/13: Kasa was impressive at the Combine, but that met expectations. He ran well and was the heaviest tight end there. Kasa also did well in the field drills.
Kasa moved from defensive end to tight end for 2012 and showed some natural ability as a pass receiver. He has a ton of upside and should get better as he gains more experience. The senior caught 25 passes for 391 yards and three touchdowns this year. A lot of scouts are high on Kasa's potential because he has a serious combination of size and speed.
