Baylor wide receiver Denzel Mims has checked all the boxes this offseason. After dominating the Senior Bowl and combine, Mims has worked his way into first-round consideration. Showing up in Indianapolis at 6’3”, 207 lbs, and running a 4.38-forty-yard dash, 38.5” vertical, 131.0” broad jump, plus a freaky 6.66 3-cone drill, Mims put himself on the radar of all 32 teams, including the Dallas Cowboys.
Mims recently told me he was planning on meeting with the Cowboys at some point this offseason over FaceTime, now Justin Melo of The Drat Wire confirms that meeting has taken place.
In addition to the teams I reported on last week (see below), #Baylor WR Denzel Mims has recently held pre-draft meetings over FaceTime with the #Eagles, #Cowboys, #Rams & #Jets. He has one with the #Packers in a few days. https://t.co/kmcf2x7AZP— Justin M (@JustinM_NFL) April 3, 2020
Mims is likely a round one trade-back candidate for the Cowboys, or possibly even a trade up candidate if he somehow slips into the second round. While it would be surprising if the Cowboys took Denzel Mims at 17th overall, it wouldn’t be totally crazy. With his tape paired with his impressed physical and athletic traits, Mims could be in the discussion if the Cowboys board runs dry and they aren’t able to find a trade-back partner.
Pairing Mims with Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup would give the Cowboys an exciting three receiver set with multiple ways to win. He’s definitely a name to know as we head towards the home stretch of the NFL Draft.
