Amarius Mims Scouting Report


Amarius Mims is built perfectly to play offensive line in the NFL. While he is a big boy, he also moves great for his size. He is strong, has shown impressive flexibility and his drive blocks are deadly. If Mims locks onto you in the run game, you may as well fall and try to grab a leg.


Mims is really inexperienced, so it’s tough to say he’s battle-tested coming out of the SEC. He is also slow in his pass pro. This will improve, but he feels like a player who will need a chip to help him out. He will “get got” early in his career against talented edge rushers, and possibly even some mid-tier ones.

Overall, Mims is going to be a project for the team that drafts him, but he should help out in the run game immediately.

What to Expect From Amarius Mims in 2024

Amarius Mims could start at right tackle right away for the Cincinnati Bengals. There will be bumps in the road early on, given his overall inexperience. He will “get got” be veterans, especially talented edge rushers. He shouldn’t have much of a problem being effective in creating running lanes. However, he needs to get rid of those heavy feet in pass protection. Hopefully, he will be getting help from running backs and tight ends on passing plays. If not, Amarius Mims will be getting a lot of TV time, which is almost never good for offensive linemen.

If Mims can sit and learn for most of this year, that would be great.
