Draft Analysis:

Titans picked up an ascending cover corner who checks off all the boxes athletically. He's a year or two away from being a legitimate contender for a starting role. --Mark Dulgerian

Overview

Southern Utah is typically not a hotbed of NFL talent. However, Sims joins defensive end James Cowser and safety Miles Killebrew as three draftable prospects in the 2016 class. The corner came from Andre Agassi Prep in Nevada, which was a eight-man football program when he was a freshman. Sims was a third-team All-Big Sky Conference selection as a junior, and has used his size and tenacious nature to intercept six passes and break up 15 others in his first three years. He projects as a press corner at the next level, and will get a chance to show scouts at a postseason all-star game whether he has the speed and change of direction ability to stay in the hop pocket of NFL receivers.

Analysis

Strengths

Good height, weight and speed for the position. Added 20 pounds to his frame since coming on campus. Ran a verified 4.41 in the spring. Constant annoyance to receivers getting into their framework with jabs from press and then crowding them throughout their route. Effective worker from press with well-­timed opening of hips to run. Has transition quickness downhill to disrupt the catch. Solid mirror and match technique in man cover.

Weaknesses

Faced off against below average receiver quality. Shows some balance issues when attempting to fire downhill from his bail technique. Would like to see more tenacity from him in run support. Is slow to come downhill to attack the run and when he does, has issues getting off the block. Has extremely small hands for a football player measuring under 8 inches.

Draft Projection

Rounds 4 or 5

Bottom Line

Ascending prospect who caught the attention of NFL scouts at the Shrine Game. Sims has the desired size and speed at cornerback and has adequate footwork to handle himself as a press-­man corner despite needing to step up his aggression against the run. A good combine could put his name in the discussion as one of the better small-school prospects in this draft.
