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.

LaAdrian Waddle, OT, Texas Tech
Height: 6-6. Weight: 332. Projected 40 Time: 5.30. Projected Round (2013): FA. 4/13/13: Waddle and Texas Tech blew out cupcakes to start the season before being dropped by Oklahoma and Kansas State. The Red Raiders had a big upset of West Virginia. Unfortunately, pass-rusher Stansly Maponga was out for TCU when Texas Tech played the Horned Frogs. Waddle did a solid job of protecting Seth Doege, but Waddle doesn't look like a real NFL prospect.
8/23/12: Waddle was an All-Big XII Second-Team selection last year. The junior started every game at left tackle for the second straight year. Waddle is a sleeper prospect who is worth watching in 2012. The senior should be able to move inside to guard in the NFL if he can't stay on the edge.
