Analysis

Strengths

Able to take snaps in pro-style passing attack. Showed adequate timing and anticipation for throwing windows. Extremely quick feet. Able to escape trouble and convert third downs with his feet. Showed discipline to stay in pocket and trust protection. Hard to sack. Nifty side-stepper who can elude, regroup and make the throw. Has enough zip on passes to make NFL throws. Can process quickly and adjust his game plan when on the move.

Weaknesses

Short. Benefited a great deal from play-action game. Finding passing lanes could become a struggle. Needs to improve holding safeties for a little longer with his eyes. Will wind up when driving the ball. Locks in on targets, bringing heat on receivers. Accuracy comes and goes. Will decide early on a target and throw into coverage rather than finding the open man. Throws too often off-balance. Waits a shade too long at times trying to get the cleanest throw possible.

Draft Projection

Undrafted free agent

Bottom Line

An undersized move quarterback who can make plays outside of the pocket, but often buys himself time only to make a rushed, inaccurate throw. Has enough arm strength to threaten defenses over the top. Though up and down at times, Sims has demonstrated enough potential to warrant a look as a late-round pick or priority free agent in a very weak QB draft class.
