...

There was one number that stuck out like a sore thumb when it came to many NFL talent evaluators' opinions of the Miami Dolphins' new tight end.

During his senior season at Michigan State it was documented that 17.1 percent of Sims body was fat.

...

Sims claims he had no problem cutting the weight courtesy of dieting and regular exercise. And Sims, who is 6-foot-4, is confident he won't have a problem keeping it off.

...

"Most of the time on tape I was more leaning, heavyset and I was relying on my upper body strength," he continued. "Once I learn how to use my lower body strength I think I’ll be more effective.”

The nice part about the NFL is he'll have every possible resource to develop his body and technique now that his entire life is football. Sims is a talented tightend who I think is going to split time with Keller this year. I really like him as a pass protector and redzone threat.

The draft profile on NFL.com shows him at 6'5 but then refers to his 6'6 frame later in the profile.

I like what Dion brings. Former basketball player that knows how to post up and use his body. Good inline blocker that will only get better.

I think he'll complement Keller very well this year. His inline blocking and redzone presence will really help Tannehill as well.

Personally, I'm hoping that Sims is the player we hope he is, that Egnew takes a big step forward this offseason, and that we exit training camp with four solid options at tightend (Keller, Sims, Egnew, Clay).
