Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: Mitchell is a former corner turned safety with intriguing overall skills. He floats from deep middle to the box without issues and is a big hitter in the hole.

Mitchell is an experienced corner who stands out as a smart and reliable player on the back end. He started for three years and is a smooth athlete who would look natural as a spot starter in the NFL. He is a bit short but understands how to play the position. He is a controlled athlete, can trigger his feet to turn and get to a spot and has the body control to make a play on the ball or dip his hips to make a play against the run. Mitchell has fifth-round potential.



Mitchell is strong for the position. He has average size but his strength shows in the run game. He diagnoses plays well and you can tell he is a preparation-based player; he is always in position. He is good in zone coverage, where he recognizes plays early working within the scheme and turns to get to the ball quickly. In run support he plays the position well and triggers to get downfield quickly and fill his lane. He rarely misses a tackle.


Mitchell does not make many big plays and is not a ball hawk. He is better against the run than the pass, and hasn't had much experience in man coverage. He plays well within a scheme but isn't necessarily a safety who can make his own plays; he is often around the ball but hasn't had a ton of turnover production.
Grade Title Draft (Round) Description
96-100 Future Hall of Famer Top Pick A once-in-a-generation type prospect who could change how his position is played
85-95 Immediate Starter 1st An impact player with the ability/intangibles to become a Pro Bowl player. Expect to start immediately except in a unique situation (i.e. behind a veteran starter).
70-84 Eventual Starter 2nd-3rd A quality player who will contribute to the team early on and is expected to develop into a starter. A reliable player who brings value to the position.
50-69 Draftable Player 4th-7th A prospect with the ability to make team as a backup/role player. Needs to be a special teams contributor at applicable positions. Players in the high range of this category might have long-term potential.
20-49 Free Agent UDFA A player with solid measurables, intangibles, college achievements, or a developing skill that warrants an opportunity in an NFL camp. In the right situation, he could earn a place on a 53-man roster, but most likely will be a practice squad player or a camp body.
