Notre Dame defensive tackle Jerry Tillery had shoulder surgery last month, and he’s now healed and ready for the draft.
Per a league source, Tillery’s recent return to Indianapolis for a medical recheck went well. He had played eight games last year with a torn labrum.
His pre-draft visits include the Saints, Bucs, Eagles, Colts, Chiefs, Broncos, Titans, and Chargers.
Tillery landed at No. 4 on Simms’ ranking of incoming defensive tackles, a group that features plenty of guys adept at the Simms-invented stat known as “F–kup The Play.”
Last year, Tillery had a team-high eight sacks, three forced fumbles, 30 total tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, and five quarterback hurries.
