"On the Hoof: Mitchell possesses a large frame that could easily add more muscle mass. He is shaped a bit like North Carolina 2009 signee Brennan Williams.
Needs Improvement: Mitchell needs to play much lower at the point of attack. He also needs to add to his arsenal of pass-rushing techniques. Does he have the toughness and durability to play inside at the next level? We will find out once he is playing football full-time.
