Mims received a few repetitions at the attacking tackle this spring but was unable to start thanks Broderick Jones And Warren McClendon effectively blocking the two initial jobs.

He has some playing experience, so we can’t wait to see him take the next step, “Van Pran said.” I think he’ll be fine though, honestly, just watching him and how he trains and just honestly watching how he works. thing of beauty, so I can’t wait to know how he will take the next step, because in my opinion he is a generational talent “.
Head coach of Georgia Clever Kirby mentioned Mims on April 5 as one of the offensive linemen who have made great strides this spring.
“We look at the offensive line and I say, ‘Dude! See how far away Amarius Mim has arrived. Man! Look how far this boy has grown and improved, Devin Willlock‘”said Smart.” I want to see the players improve and not just freeze, improve your fundamentals and improve so that our team can be better. We have some guys who are improving. I’m excited about that. “
