Dion Sims declares for 2013 NFL Draft, according to report

Michigan State tight end Dion Sims will forgo his senior season and enter the 2013 NFL Draft, according to a report.

Michigan State tight end Dion Sims will reportedly forgo his senior year and enter the 2013 NFL Draft, according to ESPN's Joe Schad.

As a junior in 2012, Sims caught 36 passes for 475 yards and two touchdowns. Sims missed three games during the middle of the season because of an ankle injury.

Sims is an intriguing draft prospect in large part due to his size. At 6'5, 280 pounds, Sims is a capable blocker. Unfortunately for Sims, Michigan State's passing attack ranked 87th in the country, averaging just 209.9 yards per game passing. With a below-average passing attack, Sims' route-running and athleticism wasn't on display as much as it could have been.

With nearly four months until the NFL Draft, it's difficult to project where Sims will be selected, but he certainly has the potential to be picked within the first few rounds of the draft.

The first round of the 2013 NFL Draft will be held on Thursday, Apr. 25, and conclude Saturday, Apr. 27.
