2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
David Sims, SS, Iowa State
It was in 2009 when Sims had a breakout season. The safety totaled 88 tackles, picked off five passes and forced three fumbles. Sims continued to play well on the field in 2010, tallying 96 tackles and forcing three more fumbles. However, he was arrested over the summer of 2010 and has some baggage that NFL teams will want to be cleared up before they use a draft pick on him.
Sims is a strong player, despite his relatively diminutive 5-9 stature. He can lay out some huge hits and always seems to be around the ball. When his head is in the game, Sims can make a big impact. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. The other big concern scouts will have is Iowa State's defensive scheme. They generally have five defensive backs, thus limiting what the Cyclones ask Sims to do. He will have to prove that he can play with more open field around him and even then Sims is still a sixth or seventh round draft pick.
