Mike Sims-Walker did not generate a lot of fanfare when chosen in the third round by Jacksonville in 2007. In 2008, Sims-Walker accounted for just 16 catches. This season, however, he been a steadying force in the offense, snaring 63 passes from David Garrard, winner of the first-ever VIZIO TVP award, for 869 yards and seven touchdowns, exceeding all expectations of him and making him a true value to his club at a salary of $460,000.
