Filling their biggest need on offense, the Jets got into the 2020 deep class of receiver with Denzel Mims out of Baylor. He was selected at pick 59 overall and was one of those receivers that had a high second round grade and so the Jets had one fall in their lap.
Mims became a starter in his sophomore year and played through his senior year averaging close to 60 catches per season, went over 1,000 yards receiving twice and scored 28 touchdowns. At 6-3, 215 lbs. he can stand out in the red zone and keep his nose for scoring at the next level.
The Jets have a hodgepodge of receivers after Robby Anderson left in free agency. Jamison Crowder is probably the best of the bunch in the slot and good for getting yardage in bunches. Breshad Perriman had his most impressive season down in Tampa, but will he take that play to new team with young pieces all around him? Quincy Enunwa has two major neck injuries already. Mims gives them that receiver that can do what is asked of a No. 1 receiver, but can he break through early? He’s not getting picked in any redraft leagues until late but he could be a sleeper this season.
