Tackle David Mims visited the Ravens

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Virginia Union offensive tackle David Mims visited the Baltimore Ravens this week. The hulking Virginia Union offensive tackle is 6-foot-8 and 331 pounds after playing at nearly 350 pounds for the majority of his career. Mims bench pressed 225 pounds 29 times at his Pro Day workout, running the 40-yard dash in 5.32 seconds.

He registered a 4.8 20-yard shuttle, an 8.1 on the three-cone drill, an 8-6 broad jump and a 27-inch vertical leap.

Mims' workout numbers are superior or equal to many of the top tackle prospects. The Division II All-American and All-CIAA selection is an imposing blocker who displays a mean streak. Although he played left tackle in college, Mims is regarded as a classic right tackle for the next level.

His draft stock has risen to the point where he's expected to be drafted anywhere from the fifth round to the sixth round, according to ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr.
