If Buffalo Bills fans thought that the team was all set at the wide receiver position after completing a blockbuster trade for former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs, think again. Recent media reports have the team meeting with wideout prospect Denzel Mims through FaceTime—given the ongoing coronavirus-related restrictions on team visits. Those same reports also highlighted the fact that these meetings came after the trade for Diggs, possibly indicating that the team may still be interested in getting younger at the position.

Mims is also notable for his size, at 6’3” and 207 lbs. Despite the addition of Diggs, Buffalo still lacks a wide receiver taller than 6’2”, outside of Duke Williams. Mims is yet another receiver in this class who has red-zone jump-ball capability.
Unlike other wideout prospects such as Michael Pittman or Gabriel Davis, Mims is much more polished as a route runner and there aren’t any questions regarding his long speed. The biggest knock on the former Baylor Bear is that he largely made his hay in college by clowning smaller Big-12 cornerbacks. Not exactly the best competition, although Mims somewhat made up for that by competing well at the Senior Bowl.
