STRENGTHS Has a massive frame, which makes him an inviting targets for quarterbacks to throw to. Soft hands and who catches the ball off of his frame. Uses his size to shield defenders from making a play on the ball. Tough to tackle with the ball in his hands, falls forward. Gains speed in the open field. Understands positioning and shows nimble feet as a run blocker. Good foot quickness as a pass blocker.
WEAKNESSES Has trouble adjusting to difficult throws. Stiff in the hips, and not overly flexible. Slow to get off the line of scrimmage, takes time to get out of his stance. Not a mauling blocker like his size would indicate. Hands are often outside of the frame of the defender. Lunges at his blocking assignments. Will have his head down when blocking.
NFL COMPARISON Scott Chandler
BOTTOM LINE Sims is an intriguing prospect mostly due to the open field speed that he possesses on a 6-foot-6, 285-pound frame. Sims is a good pass blocker, and has a soft pair of hands. However, he doesn't always use his size in the run game, and he struggles to bring in the difficult catch. He will likely be a mid-round selection.
the reports on him look good. I was mislead about him by other sites.
Tyson Chandler? Definitely not the comparison I would make.
I think he's a goal line TE. Blocker, redzone target....fills the immediate need, but not a #1 TE.
Armando said today Miami was prepared to take Jordan Reed in the 3rd, and called him to say they would take him. They traded down instead.
I think that says all you need to know about their thoughts on Egnew and Clay.
