6 intriguing day-two wide receivers Steelers could target in the NFL Draft
By Evan Bachman
5. Marvin Mims, WR, Oklahoma
The next receiver on the list is Marvin Mims who is a potential option for the Steelers in the third round. While he doesn’t have a specific calling card, he does enough things well that he can develop into a quality receiver at the next level.
Mims burst onto the scene and led the Sooners in receiving yards as a true freshman. He didn’t quite reach the All-American level that he flashed potential for in his freshman year, but he was still highly productive over his three years.
His ability to win over the top to stretch defenses was his best attribute at Oklahoma. Not only does he have good speed and explosiveness, but he also adjusts to the ball very well. Mims is capable of some spectacular catches as he can make plays on the ball downfield, circus-type catches, and sideline catches.
He has the skill set to develop in the NFL as either a slot or outside receiver as he did both at Oklahoma. Mims could be a hidden gem in a wide receiver class that isn’t as talented as recent classes.
