RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for John Simon.

2014

Simon was a fourth-round draft pick in 2013, but he's probably not going to see much of the field in 2014, as was the case in his rookie season.

2013

Simon had a productive career as a pass rusher at Ohio State, and the Ravens selected him in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Baltimore looks strong up front this season, so Simon will likely be given time to develop.
