BIO: First-team All-Conference selection as a senior after making the move to offensive guard. Rotated into the starting lineup as a junior when he played defensive tackle.
POSITIVES: King-sized lineman with marginal athletic skills. Quick off the snap into blocks, turns opponents off the line and tough to get around. Keeps his feet moving throughout the action, extends his hands into opponents and jolts them at the point of attack. Patient, stays square and is a solid position blocker.
NEGATIVES: Not light on his feet, not effective in motion, and marginal skills in space. Does not play with much balance and gets pushed back into the pocket rather easily. Poorly conditioned and wears down.
ANALYSIS: A college lineman who's gotten by on natural ability, Mitchell is a size prospect who must quickly kick his game into gear. Possesses a soft body and needs to not only improve his conditioning but get into the weight room and make major strength gains to have any chance of playing at the next level.
