Mims checks in as the 22nd-ranked player on the consensus big board.

“With the Bengals placing the franchise tag on No. 2 wideout Tee Higgins, tackle would appear to be the top priority for a franchise that badly needs to keep Joe Burrow upright and healthy,” Robinson wrote. “Mims is light on college starting experience, but he has the talent to step in and make a difference right away.”

Mims could be a great replacement for Jonah Williams and he shouldn’t have any issue playing on that side, having suited up at right tackle his whole college career.

That’s no real surprise, as o-line and d-line are two positions that have to be addressed either in free agency or early in this year’s draft. Even if DJ Reader is re-signed, it would be great to have another impact player in the middle of the defense since Reader and BJ Hill are the only impact-makers on the roster there.
