Entering the season, Charles Sims was one of the top senior running backs in the nation. Sims transferred from the Houston Cougars to the West Virginia Mountaineers and begin playing immediately, for one final run at the collegiate level before making the leap to the pros.

Now that Sims is a part of the 2014 NFL Draft class, there is plenty of discussion about where he could land.

According to a number of draft analysts, Sims is one of the top “sleepers” in the draft at his position.

“[Sims] will stir up a lot of interest as draft day nears,” Gil Brandt wrote in his latest piece for “West Virginia didn’t have a good offensive line this season, and it hampered him, but he is a very good all-around back who can really catch the ball well and is a good runner.”

Bucky Brooks, also of, added that Sims could have a ”Matt Forte-like impact in the pro game.”

It will be interesting to see where Sims is selected when the draft rolls around in May, but it currently looks like he will be selected in the mid-to-late rounds.
