Mims “meets” with Bills

Recommended Posts

Id be stoked if we got Mims or a player like him, but I am a little skeptical Beane is going to use the first 2 picks in this draft (plus a 5th and 6th and next years 4th) essentially on 2 WR's with Brown and Cole already on the roster.  Wouldn't surprise me to see us take a WR in 3rd or 4th though, but to also use our second feels less probably.  I wont be against it by any means, just not sure I see it as a likely scenario.

Beane is full of surprises.

If he’s available when they pick in the second round and if they consider him the best player available I could see them taking him.

if he is there at 54 it would be hard to pass on.  I'd rather go OT or RB at 54 and then Claypool in the 3rd, but Mims would be very hard to pass on.  

 

While we do have Brown and Beasley, both are over 30 and getting a guy who can be a #1 in 2-3 years would be huge.

He IS what many want Duke to be. Big, fast receiver who can high-point the ball.

I don't dislike Duke, and I wished he could have gotten more playing time before the last Jets game. But he isn't fast like Mims, not even close.

This is where I’m at with this regime.  If Beane wants a guy, he seems to do what it takes to move around to get him.  I could see Beane moving back into the bottom of the first round for a player like this.

Duke is never going to be fast.

Mims at 54 is a dream come true! Dude is the last missing piece we need for our receiving corps. Watch his highlights on YouTube if you haven’t seen him this season

I'm with you on this.  Beane may not be convinced that all of these highly regarded WR's will be gone before round four.  I found it interesting that several teams recently signed experienced free agent WR's to some fairly large contracts prior to the draft.  That may be a signal that teams don't think there are many WR's in the draft that will make an immediate impact and plan to pass on them in the early rounds. If it plays out that way, Beane may be able to grab a decent prospect with a later pick. I personally don't see it playing out that way.  Having watched so many of these draft prospects play in college, I believe there are several guys that will be significant rookie contributors.  There could easily be 12 to 16 of the best WR's gone before pick 54.  Having snagged Diggs takes all the stress out of watching this play out.

He needs to work on his craft. High potential with lower floor than a lot of casual draft followers notice. I wouldn’t be surprised if he lasted longer than a fair amount of folks project with all the other options in this draft. None of us got to interview him and those around him though, so we can’t gauge his work ethic, etc. The question I have is , how much of what you don’t see on tape is because he couldn’t do it vs wasn’t asked to do it?

Alot of teams have more pressing needs than Wr.  Mims is a solid prospect and somewhere in rd 2 he makes alot of sense.  In terms of quality of player I see no difference in 22 or 54.  I think Mims could have been in play at 22 honestly.

He was my number 1 WR and my number 1 wish pre-Diggs. If he's on the board I definitely want him. Turn a weakness into a resounding strength. That being said, he won't be there at 54, and I don't see trading up.

I don’t think Mr Beane was lying about adding explosive playmakers to the offense. Went out and got Diggs. I think he adds another in the 2nd round... Mims, Hamler, Reagor, Claypool, Taylor, Dobbins, Akers.

I doubt Mims makes it out of the top of the 2nd round... I'm sure Carolina will pick him in the second... Rhule.

Well as I read the article, and the one poster who mentioned all of this capital to get back in the 1st wasn’t reported so I don’t know how much Beane will give up.  He won’t give everything away, but he’s been shrewd before in moving up, so we’ll see.  I’d love to get him at the right price, and to get back in the first if available Beane will probably watch the board, and then if close target the most cash strapped teams as they’ll want volume.  I know it sounds like blasphemy, but a possible target is the Patriots.  With the $13.5 they have to pay for Brady against the cap, and they only have $2.3 million left in the cap and a lack of talent, so it is not crazy to get back to the Patriots.

 

That is just one wild scenario, but who knows?

Mims might not even make it out of the first round.😞

I agree, if he makes it out of the 1st he will be one of the 1st players picked in the 2nd rd.
