Nick Mitchell
Position: C
Class:  5Sr
Conference: Mid-American
HT: 6-1.5
WT: 292
40 Time: 5.15
Biography: Two-year starter who also saw time with the first team as a sophomore.

Positives: "Explosive zone blocking center who is effective on his feet. Bends his knees, blocks with leverage, and nicely adjusts to pick up the blitz. Gets his hands into defenders, quick in all aspects of the game, and keeps his head on a swivel. Jolts defenders with good hand punch, quickly getting them into defenders, and correctly placing them. Effective with shotgun snap."

Negatives: Lacks a dominant base and gets pushed back off the line of scrimmage. Struggles handling one-on-one blocking assignments.

Analysis: "Mitchell is an underrated center who has the ability to be a backup in a zone blocking system that consistently puts him in motion, requiring him to block in space."

Projection: FA
