Jets Agree With Second-Rounder Denzel Mims

The New York Jets agreed to terms with rookie wide receiver Denzel Mims, the 59th overall pick in the second round, on a four-year, $5.5 million deal on Friday, according to SNY insider Ralph Vacchiano. The deal includes $3 million guaranteed. Mims is expected to play right away in three-receiver sets with Breshad Perriman and Jamison Crowder after Robby Anderson left for the Panthers in free agency. Mims caught 186 passes for 2,925 yards and 28 touchdowns (12 in his senior season) at Baylor. The 6-foot-3 wideout excels down the field and on contested catches, so he could be a real red-zone weapon for quarterback Sam Darnold right away. Mims is worth a late-round flier as a WR5/6 in redraft formats this year.

Denzel Mims Has Opportunity In Jets Offense

New York Jets rookie wide receiver Denzel Mims, selected 59th overall in the second round, had 12 touchdowns on targets of 10-plus air yards last year, which was tied for third-most in college football. Jets receivers had only 10 catches of 20-plus air yards all year in 2019, tied for second-fewest. Robby Anderson had eight of those 10 catches, and he's now in Carolina, so there will be opportunity for Mims in 2020. Mims' 20 contested catches last year tied him for second-most in college football, but his 18 drops since 2018 also tied him for the most in that span. The opportunity alone, though, makes the 22-year-old worth a WR5/6 dice roll in deeper leagues in hopes that quarterback Sam Darnold will take a step forward with an improved offensive line in front of him.

Denzel Mims Heads To Jets With Pick No. 59

The New York Jets used the No. 59 pick to select Baylor wide receiver Denzel Mims in the 2020 NFL draft. After posting a senior season where he caught 66 passes for 1,020 yards and 12 touchdowns, Mims impressed at the NFL Combine, running a 4.38 40-yard dash. At 6'3", Mims has above-average size and speed while also boasting a fantastic catch radius, although he struggled with drops and in contested-catch situations at Baylor. The Jets came into the draft in need of a wide receiver and can plug Mims in as their WR2 right away. If he reaches his potential, Mims could eventually develop into a quality WR1 and a true vertical threat as a "Z" receiver.
