    This “he only has 8 starts” is just completely misleading, not to mention aggravating. He played many snaps in 2022 as the Dawgs played 7-8 O linemen every game. I don’t know exactly how many snaps he had, but that number is way more relevant than how many games he was in on the first offensive play of the game. Of course, with cut and paste taking the place of actually writing these days I’m pretty sure we will continue to see this sentence over and over: “Mims has only eight starts during his Georgia career, something that both the offensive tackle and Smart see as an overblown narrative.” PLEASE!!

    Mims is probably the highest ranked OL prospect ever to play at UGA. Barring injury, Mims will play a long time in the NFL and eventually develop into a Pro Bowl level player.

    The point of "only 8 starts" is that Mims has a lot more development to do to reach his (high) ceiling. He is not there yet and he is not near being ready to compete at that level in the NFL yet. It took Andrew Thomas multiple years starting at UGA AND at the NFL level to become a proficient NFL OT.

    So w/ Mims the sky is the limit. But to expect him to hit the ground running at the next level is not realistic. Not as realistic as it is to expect SVPG to hit the ground running at the NFL level after 44 starts at UGA. With the tight salary cap on the NFL, #1 draft choices are heavily invested in and expected to start almost immediately at the NFL level. There is no substitute for experience. Mims will need to grow up fast.
