Denzel Mims is the much-needed weapon that Sam Darnold has been looking for -- and the Jets' second-round pick isn't wasting any time with getting to know his new quarterback.
"I'm gonna be on the phone with Sam Darnold all the time, basically going to be like my new best friend," the Baylor wide receiver told SNY's Jeane Coakley after being selected with the 59th overall pick. "I'm going to try to become his best friend so we can build that bond and build that relationship."
Mims, who said he's already been in touch with Darnold, is excited to join the Jets: "I feel like I can come in and fit right in with them, especially with a great quarterback like Sam Darnold."
After shedding a few tears when he got drafted, Mims also talked to SNY about what he learned from playing at Baylor, how he plans on approaching the upcoming weeks, and the best advice he's received through this whole process.
