Denzel Mims Player Overview

What You Need To Know:

  • Mims brings the production and top-end athleticism to forecast a high NFL ceiling.
  • He was selected as the WR13 in the 2020 draft, albeit in a year rich with WR talent.
  • We don’t expect anything close to a polished product right away. But there’s not a tough path to targets with Jamison Crowder, Breshad Perriman and Chris Herndon filling the depth chart.


College background

Mims barely hit the field as a true freshman but exploded the following fall. He led the Bears in all major receiving categories, accounting for 22.7% of the receptions, 31.5% of the yards and 34.8% of the TDs. Mims’ 17.8 yards per catch ranked 12th in the country among players with 40+ grabs. He was named second-team All-Big 12 and to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List.

Mims’ numbers took a step back in 2018 as senior transfer (and current 49er) Jalen Hurd emerged as Baylor’s top target. Hurd led the team with 69 catches and 946 yards, although Mims still ranked 1st with his 8 TDs.

Mims missed 1 game in 2018 with a hamstring injury. His market shares in the other 12: 20.2% of the receptions, 22.7% of the receiving yards and 38.1% of the receiving scores.

Hurd’s departure paved the way for Mims to set new career highs in catches and TDs this past year. Only 11 WRs in the country topped his 12 scores. Mims ranked 37th in receiving yards and 48th in catches. He was named first-team All-Big 12.

Mims gobbled up 23.8% of Baylor’s receptions, 28.6% of the receiving yards and 50% of the receiving scores as a senior. Those market shares rank 16th, 13th and 1st out of 23 of this year’s top WR prospects. Mims’ 2.36 yards per route run last year ranked 16th among those 23 wideouts.

He did enough for the Jets to spend a Round 2 pick on him — albeit as the WR13 in April’s loaded draft.
