David Mims
Position: T
Class:  4Sr
Conference: Non-Division I
HT: 6-8.5
WT: 350
40 Time: 5.76
Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the last two years and named as an All-American in 2010.

Positives: "Massive tackle prospect who plays to his size. Bends his knees, strong at the point, and gets movement run blocking. Stays square and seals defenders from the action. Shows tremendous hand punch and easily knocks defenders from their angle of attack. Large enough to engulf opponents. Better than average lateral blocking range."

Negatives: "Must improve his balance, as he's on the ground too much. Must do a better job correctly placing his hands into defenders. Not light on his feet or effective blocking in motion."

Analysis: Mims has the size and underlying skills to play at the next level and is a solid developmental prospect who needs to slim down and improve the details of his game.

Projection: 6-7
