Draft Profile: Baylor Wide Receiver Denzel Mims

9 March 2020 DRAFT


Denzel Mims 2020 NFL Draft Profile

Stock up, criticism down. Denzel Mims is quickly flying up draft boards after putting on a show at the 2019 Senior Bowl and continuing to impress at the NFL Combine. He is a physical specimen at 6’3″ 207 who has long arms and is explosive beyong measure at the point of attack for catching or blocking. His route tree was under criticism prior to the Senior Bowl but he regularly ran some of the best routes that week and scouts took notice. His blocking was insanely impressive as well. Mims and Higgins play a very similar game in my opinion. Mims is just more explosive and sudden; however, Higgins is a much better jump ball guy but he may just be the best in the class when you roll back the film. Mims as well as many of these receivers are all day 1 worthy in many eyes; however, a loaded class means that a lot of guys will slide do to the surplus of incredible receivers. Mims is the hot stock right now and someone is definitely going to invest come April.
