Greg Powers Signing Day Evaluation: Sims is a home-run back who makes big plays in big games. He has some very sick moves in the open field making him one of the toughest players in the game to bring down in a one-on-one scenario. He will remind many people of LaDainian Tomlinson, because he has great hands so he is also able to make some big plays in the passing game. Runs with good power despite his size, but is more of a threat outside the tackles at this point in his career.
