Blake Sims won't follow the road of some big-school college signal-callers and insist on being a quarterback and a quarterback only.
Teams also worked Sims out pre-draft as a returner, Rapoport noted.
Sims spent his freshman year as a tailback under Nick Saban before moving under center. As a quarterback last year, Sims rushed 83 times for 350 yards and seven touchdowns.
At 5-foot-11, 218 pounds with accuracy issues, Sims could have trouble finding a job at quarterback. His willingness to play another position will be encouraging to teams, despite not having played running back for three years.
In a league with few chances, Sims will take any opportunity to get a shot. Not all are so willing.
