2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor Bears

Career Snapshot
Three-year starter who earned First Team All-Big 12 honors and made 66 catches for 1,020 yards and 12 touchdowns as a senior in 2019. Caught 55 passes for 794 yards and eight TDs as a junior. Earned Second Team All-Big 12 honors and made 61 receptions for 1,087 yards and eight scores as a sophomore.

Positives
Large, strong receiver who plays big football. Quickly releases off the line of scrimmage, displays exceptional hand use to separate from defenders and immediately comes free from the snap of the ball more often than not.

Plays with balance and body control, displays both focus and concentration and makes the difficult reception with defenders draped on him. Comes back to the ball out of breaks, extends his hands and offers the quarterback a target. Uses his large frame to shield away defenders. Gets vertical, adjusts and pulls the fastball from the air. Gives effort as a downfield blocker and gets results.

Negatives
Displays limited quickness into breaks. Really does not show a second gear on the field.

Analysis
Mims was a consistent threat for the Baylor offense and had an exceptional week of practices at the Senior Bowl. He’s a big-bodied receiver who can be an effective third-down or red-zone target and possesses all the skills necessary to develop into a number one wideout.
