Denzel Mims – WR (Baylor)
This year’s wide receiver class is super deep and the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine was a chance for the Vikings coaches and scouts to separate the cream of the crop and see which of these pass-catchers should come off the board first in April.
One guy who improved his stock with a solid performance in Indianapolis was former Baylor wide receiver, Denzel Mims.
Mims ran a blazing 40-yard dash in 4.38 seconds and he did this despite being 6-foot-3 and 207 pounds. That’s an insane time.
The rest of his workout was solid too. He caught everything thrown his way and showed off his explosive lower body with a 38.5-inch vertical jump and a 131-inch broad jump.
What makes his performance at the Combine more impressive was that he also shined at this year’s Senior Bowl. Mims is nailing his draft season and really making himself some money.
The Vikings do need to find a couple of more wide receivers this offseason. They have two elite pass-catchers and another promising one on the roster now, but they have to fill out their depth chart for 2020.
Mims was a player Minnesota probably had a late second round or early third-round grade on. After his Combine performance, the Vikings would be lucky to see him still on the board when it’s their turn to pick in the second round.
