Chiefs Sign Undrafted FA OT David Mims

The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to terms with undrafted free agent OT David Mims from Virginia Union.

Scouts Inc. assigned a rating of 30 and ranked him as the 45th offensive tackle.

While teams cannot officially sign players until 9am Tuesday morning, Mims confirmed the move via Twitter.

The mammoth 6-foot-8, 331-pound tackle brings with him a freakish power and athletic ability.  Not only did Mims bench 225 pounds 29 times at his Pro Day but also ran a 5.32 40.

Leading up to the draft we thought Mims would have made a perfect late round option for Todd Haley and Scott Pioli as they looked to upgrade at right tackle.  The only thing holding him back is the lack of competition against elite talent, something he will quickly get introduced to during training camp.  But when you have a chance to add someone with the size/speed combination that Mims brings to the table, it’s a no brainer.

Depending how quickly the Division II All-American adapts to the speed of the NFL, he could go from undrafted to starter on the right side in a couple of years.
