Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Possesses the combination of size, agility, straight-line speed and ball-skills to be an elite game-changer at the next level, but is a work in progress as a route-runner. He's explosive out of his breaks and is tough to tackle, showing not only elusiveness and vision but strength to fight through arm tackles and break away for the long score.

WEAKNESSES: Splitting time between so many positions early in his career stunted his growth as a receiver, and most of his production at wideout came off of relatively simple routes in his freshman and sophomore seasons. Significant injury red flags.

COMPARES TO: AJ Green, Wide Receiver, Cincinnati Bengals - Mitchell's combination of size and elite athleticism remind many of another former Georgia standout in Green, who has gone on to be one of the NFL's best at the position. Mitchell will need to show rapid improvement as a route-runner though, considering his late start as a fully-committed wide receiver.

Player Overview

Entering the 2013 season, Mitchell topped my list of Georgia's top prospects. Recurring knee injuries, including a torn ACL suffered in the season-opener against Clemson and a separate injury that forced new surgery on July 31, however, very much has his stock in flux.

When healthy, Mitchell has shown flashes of superstardom. Over his first two years in the program, he has spent time at wide receiver, cornerback, kick returner and punt returner and has been described as Georgia's most dynamic and versatile weapon since Champ Bailey.

Prior to the knee injuries, Mitchell was a dynamic athlete who struck fear into defenders.

His production to this point (85 catches for 1,237 yards and eight touchdowns) speaks to his upside.

His production to this point (85 catches for 1,237 yards and eight touchdowns) speaks to his upside.
