Mims is a player who benefited significantly from the pre-draft process. Scouts and media members in Mobile, Alabama, got a good look at the long receiver during Senior Bowl practices, where he wowed onlookers and provided a big boost to his stock. Some thought Mims might even go as high as the first round, but the Jets fill a massive need with potentially great value by choosing Mims at 59.
Mims is unpolished, but his natural talent and athleticism should ease his transition to the NFL. New York was in need of a receiver of Mims' stature following the departure of Robby Anderson and they answered that question with the choice of Mims. He'll now prepare to catch passes from Sam Darnold in the Big Apple.
