2020 NFL Draft: 3 reasons Ravens should take Denzel Mims
2. Mims would be a steal at 28:
There are a lot of good receivers in the 2020 NFL Draft. Mims belongs in the first round conversation. In a draft class with Jerry Jeudy, Ceedee Lamb and Henry Ruggs, Mims could have the highest ceiling. You could say he’s a boom or bust prospect until you’re blue in the face at the end of the day taking Mims would be trying to get a superstar. It wouldn’t be waiting to take whatever player ends up being available later on. It would be taking the player with the most upside to offer. Mims wouldn’t come in as the number two receiver, he would instantly be on par with Brown. Mims may even become the main attraction to the offense not named Jackson.

It’s not entirely likely that Mims will be available with the 28th pick. It would be shocking if he got past the Minnesota Vikings who have two picks before the Ravens would have a crack at it. They just traded away Stefan Diggs. Before the Vikings first pick is the Philadelphia Eagles. They need receivers as bad as any team in the NFL. Sandwiched in between the Vikings’ picks is the New England Patriots. Their need for wide receiver is fairly obvious and if they’re not going after Jordan Love or Justin Herbert, Mims could be just what they want. Under the assumption that Juedy, Lamb and Ruggs are gone by the middle of the first round, there will be a few teams that could take Mims in the 20’s.
If Mims fell to the 28th pick he would be a gift of good fortune for the Ravens. It would be an irresistible value. Mims may not be the conventional pick for the Ravens. He may not even be the safest pick. He would however be the best player available with the 28th pick barring an ultra unpredictable first round.
