Seahawks selected LSU CB Tharold Simon with the No. 138 overall pick.
Simon (6-foot-2, 202) took over as the Tigers' No. 1 corner in 2012, following Mo Claiborne's exit and Tyrann Mathieu's dismissal. Simon recorded four interceptions as a 13-game starter, but showed hip tightness and does not change directions smoothly. He profiles as a press corner with plus size and straight-line speed (4.51). Simon would inevitably struggle in zones and off-man. He won't have to do that in Seattle's press-heavy scheme. Joining a loaded roster, Simon is being added for depth and potential special teams impact. Sat, Apr 27, 2013 02:15:00 PM

Draft eligible LSU CB Tharold Simon was arrested late Thursday night for allegedly intimidating a police officer.

Wow. Simon is expected to be a mid to late round pick during the 2013 NFL Draft. He was charged with public intimidation, resisting an officer, and unnecessary noise violation. He was released on bond. Friday was supposed to be "Tharold Simon Day" in the prospect's home of Eunice.

National Football Post's Russ Lande writes LSU CB Tharold Simon's stock is slipping, potentially into the fourth or fifth round.

"With great height, long arms and elite speed for his size, he has everything teams want in a press man cornerback, but the issue is the total package," Lande writes. "While his backpedal is deceptively quick and compact, as soon as he has to transition out of pedal to close on the ball he is in trouble. Teams are concerned about his stiff hips and struggles changing directions. Additionally, after his poor display of ball skills at the LSU Pro Day, teams question if he can track the ball well enough to break up or intercept passes consistently."

LSU junior CB Tharold Simon announced that he will enter the 2013 NFL Draft.

Simon saw Morris Claiborne and Patrick Peterson enter the Draft early and be top-10 picks, but we highly doubt the junior will be selected as high. In fact, Simon may not be among the first five cornerbacks selected due to projected development, but he does have talent and length for the position.
