Overview:

Mitchell finished his career at Austin Peay, where he played in 39 career games, had 124 tackles, 7.5 for loss, 1.5 sacks, 2 pass breakups, and 1 forced fumble. He has good size, he has good speed, and was a tackling machine. He is a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. He is a tough nosed player, and has good instincts. He is a solid cover linebacker, he is a hard hitter, and a run stuffer. He is also a relentless defender, and a ferocious defender. He gets good pressure on the quarterback, and is a good pass rusher. He is a special teams standout on the coverage units, and he is versatile, as he can play both outside linebacker, and inside linebacker. He is very powerful, and a physical defender. He also uses his speed to get by offensive lineman when pursuing the ball carrier. On the other hand, while he has good speed, he does not have elite linebacker speed, and he is not known as a big sack guy, but that does not hurt his game,. With that said, I view Mitchell as a potential day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
