*** [RD 1] Bengals Select ~ AMARIUS MIMS, OT ***


Recommended Posts

Amarius seems like a really good guy, a good teammate. Great to see that he seems to really be fitting in with the other guys. 

Thinking I might have to start using a "like I said" counter, though. He says it a lot. Kinda like Mixon saying "at the end of the day," and Lap saying "no question about it!" ... only, a lot more. Know what I'm sayin? Just sayin'

There is an endearing "aw shucks" charm and innocence to his personality, which dramatically contrasts with his monstrous size. I predict he will quickly become a fan favorite like CTB did. 

 

When Zac drafted Mims he cited his likeable personality and that he was a "good person", which is not automatic in today's NFL.

 

It's hard not to root for a guy like Mims and early reports are that he stops and takes a photo with everyone that asks at events.

An All-Pro  soon?

I could see it.

Has he been slotted yet? I know he's not signed, but are the guys around him done yet for slotting purposes?

 

The only first Rd picks still unsigned are 1, 8, 9, 10, 17, and 18 (Mims). 

 

Dallas Turner still being unsigned @ 17 could likely be the hold up, as the remaining unsigned picks are clustered together.

“He's a cool rookie. Mature. Eager to learn. He's going to be all right. I feel like he's engaged with the right mindset. He takes coaching well. Always has a smile on his face. That's the kind of guy you want on your team and in your locker room for sure.”

— Trent Brown, on Amarius Mims

 

"Trent is way bigger than me. I met him for the first time this week and I was like, 'Oh my God.' I'm used to being the big one. I saw Shaq at an event in college and I got to lay my eyes on him, and he was a big dude, too. But Trent. If you watch his initial kick on pass pro and how he gets his leg out as fast as possible, I was working on that today in practice. He's just saying, ‘Play like you're 6-8, 350. Make those guys go through you. Play like you're big. Use your size to your advantage.’ It's a gift and a curse to be big in this game. Sometimes you can get out-leveraged or carry your pads too high. But when you've got that much mass, height, and athleticism, it's kind of hard for people to get around you. Orlando and Trent, those guys have been great. I'm fortunate to have vets like that with me on and off the field."
