Cleveland Browns: 3 players to watch during Thursday’s Combine drills
By Grant Puskar
No. 2: Denzel Mims, Wide Receiver, Baylor
Denzel Mims, a young wide receiver out of Baylor has solid size and athleticism. Coming in at 6-foot-3 and 206-pounds, he is an above-average sized receiver that could provide depth as well as a nice red-zone target for Baker Mayfield and company this coming season.

In 2019 with Baylor, Mims recorded 66 receptions for 1,020 yards to go along with a solid 12 touchdowns. Mims also appeared in all 12 games his last three years of school, proving to be a durable receiver as well. With the Browns already having star receivers in Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry, it could be hard for Mims to see many touches in his rookie year.
With that being said, opposing defenses will surely look to double those star wide receivers in the red zone, and Mims could be a guy with his strength and size to flourish in his potential role in the Browns offense.
He could also fill a need considering Cleveland is pretty thin behind OBJ and Landry. Wideout could become an even bigger need should Rashard Higgins — who inexplicably hardly saw the field in 2019 — leave in free agency. That lack of depth behind their top two receivers is more than enough reason to tune in and see what players such as Mims can do.
