Dolphins, 4th round. Mich. St.: Junior who has declared for 2013 NFL Draft. Great size. Nearly OL size.
Positives: Nice concentration in traffic. Adequate routes — quick into breaks. Hard to bring down. Natural hands. Great size. Nearly OL size. Adequate run blocker. Above-average upper-body strength.
Negatives: Below-average field sense and tends to forget where first-down marker is. Below-average acceleration. Consistent injury history and pled guilty to receiving stolen merchandise in 2010.
Projection: Pairs with Dustin Keller to make a nice 1-2 combo at TE for the Dolphins. I expect Sims to earn most of his money in goal-line and short-yardage packages, and could easily be their best red-zone target due to his size and hands. Draft as a TE2 with eventual low TE1 potential.
