Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about DENZEL MIMS: Baylor, 6027 207 4.37. Three-year starter, Daingerfield, TX. Earned All Big 12 honors in both 2017 and 2019. The former high school basketball and track star had a bit of a back and forth career at Baylor because of the quality around him. His senior year cemented him as one of the top receivers in the class. Has a classic wide receiver build with wiry strong length and a defender’s mentality. He is incredibly physical and tough but also shows a blend of finesse and pure speed that can make him a threat within all areas of the route tree. There are some elements to his game that need to be fixed, most notably his release and route running, but the tools are there. His issues are fixable and if he fine tunes the skill set, he can be a number one receiver in the league. Has the speed over the top and also the balance to stutter step his way to separation underneath. Gets to a lot of balls away from his frame. Uses that wide catch radius combined with late, strong hands to come down with a lot of balls that other receivers can’t grab. More than willing to send himself into a crowd like a missile en route to the ball. Can block like a tight end in space, completely dominant against defensive backs. A high effort player no matter what his role is. Takes too much time to get off the line against press coverage. A lot of wasted steps, needs more urgency as a route runner. Gets rocked by contact too easily. Too many concentration drops. Eyes don’t seem steady and smooth when chasing the deep ball. 2019 stats: 66-1020, 15.5 ypr, 12 TD. OSR:2/ 51. First/second round. (A-33 7/8, H-9 3/8, VJ-38 1/2, SS-4.43).
