Prospect Summary:

Mitchell was a top recruit who started out his collegiate career at Georgia. In 2021 (29-426-4) and 2022 (9-134-3), he flashed big-play ability for the Bulldogs, but he went underutilized due to their ground-based offense. After helping Georgia repeat as National Champions, Mitchell transferred to Texas. He was a great fit in the Longhorns’ offense and an instant contributor. In 2023, he totaled 55 receptions for 845 yards and 11 touchdowns.

There is no doubt that Mitchell is a talented receiver with starting potential for the NFL. He has mismatch height and length alongside solid hands, leaping ability, and downfield body control. Those things make Mitchell a threat to make receptions over defensive backs and come down with contested catches even when he is covered. Mitchell high points the ball and is a dangerous red-zone weapon. While Mitchell is not an elite burner, he possesses build-up speed to get downfield and challenge defenses vertically. Mitchell also is a quality route-runner and a good athlete.

Mitchell may not be a big separation receiver in the NFL because he does not have the explosion to generate quick separation from pro cornerbacks. Even though Mitchell has good size, he does not play strongly or physically. Mitchell could be better off as a No. 2 receiver playing off a No. 1 and taking advantage of single coverage. It wouldn’t hurt Mitchell to add some strength and fill out his frame for the next level.

Some team sources said they think Mitchell could go late in the first round during the 2024 NFL Draft. Others, however, shared they felt he is more likely to go on Day 2 of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Prospect Comparison:

Josh Reynolds. Team sources said Mitchell is similar to Reynolds, who has become a solid starting wide receiver for the Lions. They shared they feel Mitchell could be a better, more athletic version of Reynolds.
