Biography: Three-year starter who recorded 76 tackles/2 interceptions/4 pass breakups as a senior after posting junior totals of 74/2/1.
Positives: Productive college safety with marginal size/speed numbers. Displays a good head for the ball, quickly diagnoses the action and shows a feel for coverage. Chases the action hard, fluid changing direction and immediately locates the pass in the air. Quick up the field to defend the run and wraps up when tackling.
Negatives: Lacks deep speed and possesses just an average burst. Struggles staying downfield with opponents and making plays with his back to the ball.
Analysis: Mitchell was a consistent player in college yet lacks the physical skills to be anything other than a backup/zone safety at the next level.
