Pre-combine look at 3 WRs Titans should target in 2020 NFL Draft
By John Lowell
Day 2: Denzel Mims, Baylor
Projection: Second Round
- The Titans decline to pick up WR Corey Davis’ fifth-year option, creating a future need at WR2.
Baylor University wide receiver Denzel Mims was another name that started to bubble at the Senior Bowl. It’s rumored that he could even receive some Day 1 consideration, but for this exercise, here’s to hoping he falls to the late second round.
Mims is big with the ball up for grabs. What I mean is, it’s his ball when it’s in the air. Similar to the way wide receiver A.J. Brown plays, Mims plays with the swagger of someone that believes he’s going to make every catch.
And, that shouldn’t be difficult for a receiver his size; Mims is 6-foot-3 and weighs in at 206 pounds.
Shown above, Mims has improved his release off the line of scrimmage, and while he didn’t run the most diverse route tree at Baylor, Mims could be special in the NFL. He reminds me a bit of New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Somewhere, Titans wide receivers coach Rob Moore is salivating.
