Denzel Mims has been someone that has flown up draft boards this year after a great showing at the NFL Scouting Combine. Mims was being regarded as a late Day 2 pick or an early Day 3 pick,  but he now looks to be locked in as a late-first to early second-round selection.

Mims is a bigger receiver that the Vikings haven’t had in a while. He runs really good routes and he is one of the best in this class at stacking defenders, varying his speed to adjust to the ball over his shoulder, and extending to make the catch away from his body and away from the defender.

Mims is someone that could lockdown that full-time outside receiver role for the Vikings. He also would give Kirk Cousins a big body to throw to in the red zone and he can create mismatches against undersized corners.

Before the Combine, there were plenty of questions about his overall speed, but he shut those talks up real quick after running one of the fastest 40-times among this year’s group of wide receivers.
