Sims is second Southern Utah player taken so far during this year's draft

The Southern Utah Thunderbirds saw their second player on the day drafted in corner LeShaun Sims with pick #157.

Sims possesses top speed at his position, running a verified 4.41 40-yard dash at SUU's pro day. On the ball, Sims had 10 pass break-ups and two interceptions.

The Titans gave up the first pick of the sixth round this year and a sixth rounder next year to the Denver Broncos so they could move up to #157. Notably, the Titans also received the final pick of the draft this year in the deal, meaning they will have the honor of picking this year's "Mr. Irrelevant".

Congratulations to LeShaun Sims and Southern Utah for sending another player to the NFL.
