Overview

Mitchell brings a rare combination of size and speed to this draft. He could definitely use another year in college but will be attractive to teams that are looking for a vertical passing attack thanks to his downfield speed and size. He shows a good burst coming out of his speed cuts but will chop down too much and waste steps on hard cuts for underneath routes. He has huge hands and can catch the ball in one hand at times but will try to catch too many passes in his body when he can. He is willing to go across the middle and catch the ball in traffic and is a physical blocker on the perimeter.

Analysis

Strengths

Mitchell has an elite combination of size and speed for the next level. Has big, strong hands. His height and long-range speed make him a legitimate deep threat. Has a ton of upside potential. Is a ferocious blocker. Will really compete for the football in traffic and isn’t afraid to take a big hit.

Weaknesses

Mitchell is still a very raw prospect whose draft status could have improved with another year of seasoning. At this time, he’s a poor route runner on short to intermediate routes. He also likes to body catch and must do a better job of attacking the football away from his frame.
