He played in a total of 46 career games with 184 receptions (4th all-time at UCF) for 2,561 yards (also 4th all-time)

Achievements

  • Second-team All-Conference USA (2005)

Sims-Walker went in the 3rd round of the 2007 NFL Draft to the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he played three seasons.

His best NFL season was 2009, when he caught 63 passes for 869 yards and 7 TDs.

After another 43-reception, 7 TD year in Jacksonville, he moved on to St. Louis, but lasted only four games. He then finished his NFL career with the Jags and then had a short stint with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL before hanging it up.
