Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

Oregon went all the way to Memphis, Tenn., to grab this four-star prospect who appeared in only six games as a true freshman and then started 12 games a sophomore. He lead the Ducks with 42 catches and 517 receiving yards during a season in which quarterback Justin Herbert missed five games due to injury.

His 2018 season, with a healthy Herbert at the helm, was record-setting. He broke the school's single-season mark with a Pac-12-best 1,184 receiving yards on 75 receptions, and his six 100-yard outings were the most in the conference.

More than 1,000 of his yards came in nine league games, including scorching a talented Stanford secondary for 239 yards on 14 catches. He earned Offensive MVP honors of the Redbox Bowl, when he caught a 28-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to help Oregon beat Michigan State.

ANALYSIS

Mitchell is a rising talent and a smooth athlete who deftly beats the jam off the line and is one of the most slippery receivers in this draft class with the ball in his hands, leaving defenders grasping at empty air after a shake of his leg and a quick cut. He has the size/speed combination to play outside or in the slot.

Mitchell declared early, trying to capitalize on his big junior season, although that decision seems questionable -- especially with the likelihood of Herbert and the Ducks improving on a 9-4 season in which Mitchell again would be the clear No. 1 target.

More than Mitchell just posting more stats, though, his overall game could use a dash of seasoning. Another year in the weight room and another year of working on his inconsistent hands could have set him up to be more NFL-ready with a better draft grade in 2019.
