Denzel Mims blew scouts away at the 2020 NFL Combine. He posted top-5 numbers among receivers in the 40-yard dash (4.38 seconds) and the broad jump (131.0 inches) and even had the best time in the 3-cone drill (6.66 seconds).

He's also got the production to back it up, tallying  2,901 receiving yards and 28 touchdowns over the past three seasons. With that in mind, let's take a look at some expert predictions for Mims' landing spot in the 2020 NFL Draft.
