Pros: Marvin Mims is an explosive playmaker. His ability to win down the field and produce after the catch leads to frequent big plays. Averaging 22 yards per reception in 2021, Mims does well to create vertical separation, track the football, and adjust and attack the football in the air. While he isn’t immune to a double-catch or using his frame on occasion to secure a catch, Mims is a consistent finisher that hasn’t struggled with drops. Mims is highly competitive with the ball in his hands and his quickness, elusiveness, and field vision leads to consistent post-catch production. Despite being a smaller receiver, Mims competes well above his weight class and his competitive toughness shines as a blocker. He does well to process on the fly as a route-runner and attack space to make himself available to the quarterback. He adjusts well to zones and processes well on the fly. He has the twitch, fluidity, and elusiveness to thrive as a route-runner and create separation with consistency. Mims has experience returning punts for the Sooners. 

Cons: Marvin Mims is a smaller receiver that doesn’t offer much in the way of length or wingspan. His ability to play through contact as a route-runner will be a concern. He likely profiles best to a slot role in the NFL where he can take advantage of free releases. Despite his big-play ability, Mims hasn’t received a large market share of the Oklahoma offense, so how he fares with more volume remains to be seen. I would like to see Mims be tasked with a more expansive route tree, although he has every trait necessary to be outstanding.
