08/13/2014 - Other Arkansas prospects worth watching: CB Tevin Mitchel, Senior...Mitchel enters his senior campaign having earned starts over the past three seasons but in need of a breakout to assure being drafted. The athleticism and bloodlines are there, as Mitchel is the son of former Oklahoma (and New England Patriots) option quarterback and running back Eric Mitchel. Mitchel is a fluid athlete with natural coverage skills who changes directions easily and flashes the hand-eye coordination to rip passes away as they arrive, as well as make the interception. He is a bit of enigma at this point, however, as he has yet to put it all together and enjoy the big year expected given his talent. Perhaps as an indication that he's preparing to do precisely this in 2014, Mitchel has changed his number from No. 8 to No. 23. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
