Table inside Article
Built more like a Greek statue than an offensive lineman. Incredible frame that stands out from the moment you see him. Very flexible for a player his size and uses that to explode off the line of scrimmage. Keeps a wide and steady base in his pass sets overall. Concerns and red flags over his lack of experience and his overall football IQ. Lacks confidence at times when on an island and can get caught up in traffic with defensive movement. Some teams were concerned about his classroom testing at the combine.

OVERVIEW: One of the most inexperienced, yet intriguing prospects in the draft. He enters the NFL with only eight total starts to his credit over three years at Georgia. Mims began his career as a backup offensive tackle before taking over the starting job out of necessity during the 2022 College Football Playoff. Battled an ankle injury in 2023 that limited him to just seven games and six starts in his final season. While the frame and athleticism are enticing, teams will have to weigh the risk/reward of taking Mims early in the weekend.

COMPARISON: Dawand Jones
