2. Mims showed consistency during final three seasons at Baylor
One of the most difficult parts about the draft each year is how there are no guarantees that certain players will end up being successful at the NFL level, no matter how high previous expectations may be.
But at least when it comes to Mims, the young wideout showed enough consistent play over the last three seasons with the Bears to make it easy to understand why the interest is there for the Eagles.
Not only did Mims manage to catch 182 passes for 2,901 yards in 37 games, but he also found the end zone 28 times to show what kind of potential is there in the NFL, whether it happens to be in Philadelphia or somewhere else.
Looking at Philadelphia’s current situation at wideout, no one needs to explain just how frustrating it was to see the offense fail to have the necessary depth at the position last season when all of the injuries were taking place, but hopefully the Eagles learn from their experience.
There are always going to be some concerns over certain players such as Mims making the transition to the NFL level, but if his consistent play in college is any indication, he should be just fine.
