Yeah that's pretty contradictory from what was posted on roto. Lets hope roto is correct.Ok I'm not sure how accurate or to date this analysis of Mitchell is but I hope this guy is better in coverage than this reports says.
Positives: Big-framed athlete who carries his weight well and has a well-proportioned body … Has adequate playing strength to shed blocks and shows decent vision to make plays in the short area … Fills the rush lanes quickly, getting low in his stance to drive the fullback back on his heels … Uses his hands effectively to shed, sliding off to knife through the line … Has adequate lateral agility … Drags ball carriers down and wraps with authority … Stays with backs tight covering on underneath routes … Turns his hips sharply, turns and levels off when dropping back under the zone … Has a knack for slipping under blocks in back-side pursuit and showed much better leg drive in attempts to push blockers back into the pocket as a senior than he did in previous seasons.
Negatives: Lack of quickness (4.86-5.02 40-yard dash times) is his major liability … Very inconsistent in his attempts to shed blocks, letting the opponent rise and get their hands into his chest too easily … Gets walled off by the quicker blockers and pinned back when trying to pursue up field … Lacks quickness to handle receivers past the short area … Not a good practice player and needs to improve his training habits … Does not respond well to hard coaching … Needs to slip past blocks to make tackles, as he lacks good hand usage in attempts to disengage … Falls off too many tackles working in space … Lacks ball awareness in passing situations … Has good straight-line speed to close, but lacks range to string plays wide … Arrested in May 2006 for disorderly conduct and was suspended from the team once.
Compares To: DARYL SMITH-Jacksonville … Mitchell is stout vs. the inside running game, but lacks the quickness and range to make plays in pursuit. He showed better urgency locating the ball in 2006, but will still bite on misdirection and his lack of speed is a liability in the passing game. His work ethic also needs to improve.
