    Love this. Pittman was my first choice but it’s impossible to be anything but thrilled with this. It’s going to take time but Mims has WR1 potential. Speed is there, good size, he can track the ball, he comes down with 50/50 balls... he needs to expand the route tree and work on the space between his ears. And getting a third, which turned into two fourths, is just the cherry on top.

    Yes. Me too. I wanted him heading into round 2 however did not think we'd have a chance to land him after trading down.

    I'm starting to like this pick more than Jerry Jeudy (who I've wanted for months).

    And that's because he's a real (physical) outside #1 WR on the outside @ 6'3 and built almost identical as Keyshawn Johnson with extra speed.

    We just landed a future NFL Superstar for Sam Darnold and a true #1 physical WR with elite speed.

    Loving it.

    I was so focused on Jerry Jeudy and CeeDee Lamb to the point where I did not bother to study any of the other WR's. I have a friend down here in Florida who loves Baylor Football because he's born and raised out in Texas so after we missed out on WR's last night I asked him and texted him, which WR should I root for to draft round 2 because I knew Mims was mentioned as a good WR and he told me Denzel Mims. He immediately sent me a video of his greatest game ever against Oklahoma. After watching the YouTube link I was hooked.

    This game is from 2017 I believe.

    11 receptions for 192 receiving yards and 3 TD receptions.

    Captain charisma thinks Mims is a day one starter. Which he is.

    IMO - I think we already have a Robbie at a piece of the price .. This guy is something different.

    lol we have the best fans in the world man that video is pure and raw and awesome.

    We have not won a SB since the 1968-69 season but yet we ranked only behind Dallas and ahead of Green Bay in fan attendance last year.

    We've had 14 consecutive years in a row dating back to 2006 with top 5 fan attendance (we aren't your Cleveland Browns types of fans).

    Great pick for the Jets. I was sure Mims would be gone when Douglas traded back, but that is why he signed a 6 year deal, and I am talking on a message board! :D

    He has everything I want. Size, speed, and the Jets were still able to pick Becton too. And get 2 4th Round picks and a 6th in 2021? This guy is Houdini! :cool:

    Got that Barry Sanders/Curtis Martin type of humbleness about him after scoring (although he does celebrate more than those two ever did and good because Football is supposed to be fun for these kids).

    He appears, in the video at least, to have great coordination and sense in close. He appears to almost rope-a-dope the defender and then make his move once the ball is released. Which I’ve never seen before. Maybe I’m just projecting my wishful thinking. But he appears to have incredible instincts. Also like that he’s low-key, doesn’t bother with preening and flexing, and looks to have a real chip on his shoulder.

    I see I wasn't the only one who got this earworm. If they don't play this after big catches and touchdowns I'll be disappointed.

    The whole point is to discuss.

    I agree that we already have Robby at a piece of the price because he can step in day 1 and do what Robby did. On top of that he’s got the size, ball skills, hands and build to be a true and complete WR1 which Robby will never be.

    This is why I didn’t even lose a wink of sleep when we chose not to bring back Robby and went with Perriman. He can do everything Robby does and I think all of us knew if we played the draft right we’d end up with one one who has true all-around WR1 potential. We saved money, picked up two extra fourths and ended up with a more balanced roster. That’s a homerun.

    I’m pretty confident that the gamble was to get Van jefferson while obtaining an additional pick.

    I like this pick a lot! In addition to getting an extra pick. What’s not to like.
