Denzel Mims selected No. 59 by New York Jets

The New York Jets have selected wide receiver Denzel Mims with the No. 59 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft after acquiring the pick from the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

The New York Jets land a potential steal at 59th overall with the talented Denzel Mims. A speedster with good body control and high pointing ability, Mims will vie to be an immediate starter for the Jets. New York lost Robby Anderson to free agency, and have found themselves a potential starter in Mims. Mims has the route running ability to go with his speed, and could become a star if he becomes Sam Darnold’s number one target. Mims is a WR3 in dynasty, but comes equipped with WR2 upside. He will be more of a WR4 option in redraft leagues, as he will have to earn his targets while getting acclimated to the NFL.

Denzel Mims reportedly being targeted by the Bengals at No. 33?

According to sources, the Bengals have shown interest in Baylor WR Denzel Mims and may be targeting him with the first pick in the second round.

Fantasy Impact

Mims is a big, physical receiver that has all the talent in the world, but comes to the NFL a bit raw in his route-running ability. After selecting LSU QB Joe Burrow with the No. 1 overall pick, the Bengals could decide to add to his arsenal of weapons by going with a WR like Mims with the 33rd overall pick. Cincinnati could also be sending smokescreens to get another team who is interested in drafting Mims to trade up to get him.

Denzel Mims: Philadelphia has shown the most interest

When Baylor WR Denzel Mims was asked if the Eagles have shown the most interest in him he stated, “I believe so, I talked to them a lot. At the combine, the Senior Bowl and even after. After the combine I’ve talked to them a lot.

Fantasy Impact

Mims went on to tell Sports Radio WIP that he believed he “killed the interview” with the Eagles. With the 21st pick in this year’s Draft, It’s widely thought that Philadelphia will go with a wide receiver to upgrade the weapons for QB Carson Wentz, who at times last year was working with a stable of receivers with little to no NFL experience. Mims is one of the most talented receivers in this draft class and has the measurables to show for it. He’s got 4.36 40-yard dash speed and a 10.34 catch radius which is good for 96th percentile. He’s also a tough kid with a high football IQ and great intangibles and would be a great fit in Philadelphia should the Eagles decide to go that direction. Mims will most likely hear his name called on Day 1 of the Draft.

Denzel Mims played his junior year with a broken hand

Baylor WR Denzel Mims played his entire junior year with a broken hand, which could be part of the issue revolving around all the drops that year.

Fantasy Impact

One of the biggest question marks surrounding Mims heading into the Draft is his issue with drops. Now that we know he played his junior year at Baylor with a broken hand, are there any issues with Mims’ game? He’s got the size and speed that can get any coach or scout very excited. There’s been reports that Mims is a top-3 receiver in this draft class, and if the drops issue has been resolved, let’s see if he’s not a guy that goes earlier than expected in the first round.

Denzel Mims the 3rd best WR in this year’s draft class?

According to one NFL WRs coach, Baylor WR Denzel Mims is the 3rd best WR in this class based on size, speed, and incredible upside.

Fantasy Impact

Coming in at 6’3” and 207 lbs and running a 4.39 40-yard dash, it’s easy to see why coaches and scouts are high on Mims as a prospect in this year’s draft. As we’ve gotten closer to the Draft, it’s only become more evident that teams are high on the talented receiver out of Baylor. It’s widely agreed upon that Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb, and Henry Ruggs III are the top-3 WRs in this class, but at least one coach believes Mims is a force to be reckoned with and could give those three guys a run for their money. Don’t be surprised to see him go in the first round next week.
