Bio: 
Three-year starter named Honorable Mention All-Mountain West in all three of his seasons with the Aggies. Started all 27 games in 2014 and 2015 at right tackle before making eight of his 12 starts at right guard during his senior season.
Pos: 
College tackle who projects to guard at the next level. Sets with a wide base, works to bend his knees and plays with good awareness. Stays square, fights with his hands and keeps the defender in front of him. Shows a good degree of quickness in his game, fires into blocks and is explosive at the point. Keeps his head on a swivel. Can slide in a small area.
Neg: 
Heavy-footed, slow to the second level and ineffective blocking in motion. Not a natural knee bender.
Analysis: 
Simonich is a marginal athlete with decent size as well as growth potential and offers possibilities as a backup guard in a system which does not require him to cover much area.
