Baylor. Denzel Mims. 54. Scouting Report. Wide Receiver. 5. player. Pick Analysis

Based off the progress made each season at Baylor, Denzel Mims seems like the kind of receiver who is only going to continue to get better with experience once the wideout officially arrives to the NFL.

Once again, this year’s draft class is absolutely loaded with talent at the wide receiver position, and there is a very good chance that Philadelphia strongly considers addressing the need right away to avoid another scenario like 2019.

Words can’t describe how frustrating it was to watch the Eagles struggle at wide receiver last season after looking at all of the hype surrounding the group following an impressive Week 1 win over the Washington Redskins.

The duo of DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery along with the addition of JJ Arcega-Whiteside was supposed to help the offense reach new levels in 2019, only to watch injuries hold the group back from their true potential.

By adding someone like Mims with his catching abilities, this would provide the Eagles with the necessary insurance in case injuries became an issue at wideout for a second year in a row.

Since the other teams considering a wideout in the first round could easily go with one of the other numerous players, the Eagles could be in perfect position to land Mims.
