What Are Marvin Mims Jr.’s 4 Best NFL Team Fits?

Oklahoma wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr. is one of the most electric and dynamic pass-catchers in the 2023 NFL Draft. Mims experienced a breakout campaign in 2022 as Oklahoma’s go-to receiver. He recorded career-highs in receptions (54), receiving yards (1.083), and touchdowns (6). Mims is an explosive playmaker that averaged more than 20 yards per reception in back-to-back seasons.

Mims is a quick-twitched receiver that creates separation. Mims possesses every trait necessary to become an immediate contributor at the next level. We’ve identified four potential fits for Marvin Mims Jr.


The Panthers are searching for a new No. 1 receiver after including D.J. Moore in a package deal that helped them acquire the top overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. General manager Scott Fitterer has done a decent job adding playmakers after Moore’s departure. Carolina added Adam Thielen, D.J. Chark, and Hayden Hurst in free agency.

The Panthers should still target a receiver with the 40th overall selection in the second round. Thielen is a short-term solution and Chark signed a one-year prove-it deal. The Panthers are going to draft C.J. Stroud or Bryce Young. Fitterer’s attention should immediately turn to pairing his young signal-caller with a receiver like Mims.


The Titans haven’t added a single receiver in free agency. It’s a shocking fact considering they released veteran wideout Robert Woods, who led the team in receptions and yards last season. As things stand, Tennessee’s top three receivers are Treylon Burks, Kyle Philips, and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine. That’s the most unproven trio of any receiver room across the entire league.

The Titans have been rumored to utilize their first-round selection on a quarterback. They could trade up for Stroud, Anthony Richardson, or Will Levis. If so, general manager Ran Carthon must target a receiver with the 42nd overall pick. Mims’ dynamic skill set would complement Burks’ physicality.


The Saints are in win-now mode after signing Derek Carr to play quarterback. Saints general manager Mickey Loomis sees an opportunity to win the NFC South following the retirement of Tom Brady. Brady’s decision to walk away has thrown a wrench into the division. Based on the uncertainty at quarterback of their inner-division rivals, the Saints will feel good about their chances to qualify for the postseason in 2023. 

Loomis will continue adding weapons around Carr as a result. Chris Olave enjoyed an excellent debut season in 2022, and Michael Thomas returns to command the slot. Drafting Mims with the No. 41 overall selection to start opposite Olave would complete an intriguing supporting cast around Carr.


Bills general manager Brandon Beane is expected to add a receiver via the draft to compete for No. 2 duties opposite Stefon Diggs. An inefficient Gabriel Davis failed to take advantage of a starring role in 2022. Beane has already denied interest in trading for Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins. All signs point to Buffalo drafting a receiver, at No. 28 or 60. 

Buffalo will likely prioritize a linebacker or guard at 28th overall to replace Tremaine Edmunds or Rodger Saffold. Beane could then draft a receiver like Mims toward the conclusion of the second round. Mims would quickly create chemistry with Bills quarterback Josh Allen.
