In 41 games at Alabama, wide receiver Cam Sims caught 41 passes for 467 yards and two touchdowns. Sixty of those yards came on one reception against Ole Miss during the 2017 season.
Sims nearly equaled his collegiate career long in his first pro game. During the second quarter of the Washington Redskins' preseason game against the New England Patriots on Thursday night, Sims caught a pass from quarterback Colt McCoy, shook off defensive back Damarius Travis and ran to the New England 2-yard line. The 57-yard gain set up Washington's second touchdown of the game.
The 57-yarder was Sims' second reception of the game after he'd had a 17-yard catch earlier in the quarter.
Sims joined Washington as an undrafted rookie, so he'll be battling for a roster spot during the preseason.
Washington seems set at the top of the wide-receiver depth chart with former first-round pick Josh Doctson, Jamison Crowder (who caught 66 passes last season) and free-agent signee Paul Richardson.
After that trio, the other eight wide receivers on the Redskins' roster have a combined 10 NFL receptions. Five of the receivers are rookies, including SMU's Trey Quinn, who was the final player picked in the 2018 NFL Draft. The eight receivers probably are competing for three roster spots.
