2022 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 10/1): Jermaine Johnson, DE
It will be interesting to see if the Broncos are able to land Aaron Rodgers or Deshaun Watson. If Denver can't land one of them, quarterback will be a big hole to fill in via of the following drafts.
Sims (6-3, 210) has a phenomenal skill set and flashed huge playmaking ability as a freshman. At times, he looked like Robert Griffin III at Baylor and seemed capable of dominating defenses completely on his own. While Sims is talented, he is streaky and inconsistent. Sims completed 55 percent of his passes in 2020 for 1,881 yards, 13 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He also rumbled for 492 yards and six touchdowns.
It will be interesting to see if Sims can develop into a more consistent pocket passer, or if he is flash in the pan like some other freshman quarterbacks who never took the next step in development. That graveyard includes, among others, Christian Hackenberg, Brad Kaaya and Kellen Mond. Sims has missed some time this season with an injury, but he has completed 14-of-22 passes for 135 yards and a touchdown. He has also run for 162 yards and three touchdowns.
