Who is Denzel Mims

Denzel Mims checked every analytical box in the pre-draft process, posting a 4.38 second 40 time, a 26.0-percent target share, and a 42.3-percent college dominator rating. His combination of athleticism and dominant college stats led to him being selected by the New York Jets, signing a four year rookie contract. His career took off to a rocky start, as he missed the first 6 games of the season with two strained hamstrings. Mims showed flashes when returning, posting an 84.5-percent snap share, one dropped pass, and 5 straight games of 40 or more receiving yards.

Somehow, after a season with two simultaneously strained hamstrings, he managed to disappoint even more in the 2021 season. He entered the doghouse of new head coach Robert Saleh, and was relegated to 295 air yards and 5 deep balls on 14.5 routes run per game. Suddenly his near 80-inch wingspan wasn’t enough to reel in contested catches and he was too sluggish to create yards after the catch. His involvement evaporated, and his next gen stats suffered. Mims has found himself in an uphill battle in earning the coaching staff's trust and improving upon his ghost-like fantasy ranking. Expect an undrafted ADP from him in 2022.
