Denzel Mims
22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Taken with the 59th overall pick, Mims could vie with Breshad Perriman before long to be the team's top outside wideout. At 6-3, 207, and running a 4.38 40, Mims has the physical and athletic profile to be a No. 1 NFL receiver. He's not especially quick, though, and his route running needs work, which is probably why he went in the late second rather than in the first round. Jamison Crowder might lead the team in targets out of the slot, and Perriman was signed to be the team's downfield threat, so Mims isn't assured much as a rookie. But none of those players is a formidable obstacle should Mims surprise with his readiness at the next level. Read Past Outlooks

New York snags in second round
WRNew York Jets
April 24, 2020
The Jets selected Mims in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 59th overall.
Mims (6-foot-3, 207 pounds) broke out in his true sophomore season with Baylor in 2017, when he went for 1,087 yards and eight touchdowns in 12 games. He'd go on to average 967 receiving yards and 9.3 touchdown receptions per season over his final three years for the Bears. He then earned rave reviews for his work at both the Senior Bowl and the combine. Mims was one of the combine's top performers, running a 4.38-second 40-yard dash to go with a 38.5-inch vertical, 131-inch broad jump, and 6.66-second three-cone drill. Perhaps Mims lacks all-around polish as a receiver, but in the meantime his downfield abilities alone should make him an important threat in the Jets offense. If Mims can overtake Quincy Enunwa on the depth chart, he could be a significant fantasy asset as a rookie.
