Patriots selected Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell with the No. 112 overall pick in the 2016 draft.
Mitchell (6'0/198) made 35 starts in five seasons, logging a career receiving line of 174-2,350-16 (13.5 YPR). He helped himself in Indy by burning 4.45 with an explosive 10-foot-9 broad jump and 36-inch vertical. Mitchell was reportedly removed from some teams' boards due to knee complications stemming from a 2013 torn ACL. When healthy, Mitchell is a superb route runner with top-notch ball skills. Said to have "game-changing" potential by NFL Films' Greg Cosell, Mitchell has a chance to outperform his draft position, quite possibly by a large margin. Apr 30 - 12:57 PM

An anonymous NFL scout called Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell "steady eddie."

"Very bright kid," the scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Great character kid. Been a good producer." Mitchell had 174 catches for 2,350 yards (13.5) and 16 scores in college. "The key will be the medical," said a different scout. "The knee is a concern. He's got talent. At his pro-day workout he worked out as a corner." Mitchell is a favorite of both WR specialist Matt Harmon and your friends at Rotoworld's draft section. Health is the question.

Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell has visits scheduled with the Patriots, 49ers and Eagles, according to Aaron Wilson.

Mitchell is a favorite of receiver specialist Matt Harmon, who continues to make the case for Mitchell to be a top 10 prospect at the position. We are right there with Harmon and think Mitchell could be a better pro than collegiate player, for a number of reasons. One, Mitchell was pulled between corner and receiver during the early parts of his career. Second, he dealt with a number of injuries. Both could have hindered his development.

Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell should be considered a top 10 prospect at his position in the 2016 class, according to Matt Harmon.

"When the metrics, the film and the physical ability all point to the same conclusion on the player, it’s the sign you need to stop questioning the results," Harmon writes after putting Mitchell through the #ReceptionPerception treatment, where he scored top five marks against man coverage. Mitchell was pulled between corner and receiver early on at Georgia, and injuries derailed his progression at either spot.

Pro Football Focus gives Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell a second-round grade.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Georgia product ran a 4.45 40-yard dash and added a 36-inch vertical leap at the Combine. Mitchell forced 13 missed tackles on only 58 receptions. "It was an impressive year for Mitchell after playing less than 300 snaps in 2014 — he dropped just three of the 61 catchable passes thrown his way," Gordon McGuiness wrote. PFF ranks Mitchell as the No. 12 receiver in the class and says he's a late-second round value.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline indicated that scouts expected Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell to run the 40-yard dash "almost a full tenth slower" than his 4.45 seconds.

"Scouts were well aware of Mitchell’s pass-catching skills, but questioned his speed," Pauline wrote. No worries for the 6-foot-1, 195-pound Georgia product, who also logged a 36-inch vertical jump and a 129-inch broad jump during Saturday's wide receiver drills. The most interesting story-line regarding Mitchell, though, comes from the fact that one NFL club actually asked him to run through defensive drills at corner in addition to his regular receiving assignments. Mitchell was recruited out of high school on the defensive side of the ball. He indicated that he had no compunctions with being asked to run the DB drills.

One team has asked Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell to go through DB drills at the NFL Combine.

Our mind immediately jumps to the Seahawks, since this class appears to lack corners with arms shorter than 32-inches, and that is the threshold for Seattle. Georgia offensive and defensive coaches seemed to fight over Mitchell during the early parts of his career, and that combined with injuries likely stunted his growth at a single position. Mitchell was viewed as one top corner recruits in the country out of high school.

During the season, a "number of teams red-flagged [Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell] as undraftable due to prior medical issues," reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Mitchell couldn't shake nagging injuries during his career, the most prominent being a torn ACL suffered in embarrassing fashion while celebrating a Todd Gurley touchdown. "Teams love Mitchell’s film and the big possession wideout could end up in the middle rounds if he’s medically cleared," Pauline wrote. At the Senior Bowl last month, Mitchell displayed "polished routes, burst and natural catching with hands," according to ESPN's Kevin Weidl.

Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell earned solid reviews from the first day of Senior Bowl practice.

Mitchell displayed "polished routes, burst and natural catching with hands," according to Kevin Weidl, but the Scouts Inc. evaluator was not alone in praising Mitchell's first day. The former top recruit had an up and down career at Georgia, being pulled between offense and defense before suffering a knee injury.

Georgia senior WR Malcolm Mitchell caught five passes for 114 yards and a touchdown in the school's 24-17 win over Penn State.

Mitchell joined Georgia with plenty of attention and expectations. Coaches on both sides of the ball seemed to battle for him, some wanted him to play corner, some receiver. He then dealt with a number of injuries. The combination of these events likely hindered his development. Mitchell is headed to the Senior Bowl.
Jan 2 - 3:43 PM

Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell has accepted his Senior Bowl invitation.

Mitchell joined Georgia with plenty of expectations. So much that both coordinators wanted him to play on their side of the ball. Mitchell then dealt with early injuries and never fully progressed at corner or receiver. He will likely pursue a career on offense.

Georgia senior WR Malcolm Mitchell's "draft status will hinge on the reports teams receive from doctors," CBS Sports Rob Rang notes.

"The unfortunate reality is that regardless of how well Mitchell performs in 2015, his ultimate draft status will hinge on the reports teams receive from doctors who are sure to check Mitchell closely during medical evaluations at the Scouting Combine," Rang wrote. In his first two years at Georgia, Mitchell showcased his versatility, playing wide receiver, cornerback, kick returner and punt returner. Rang believes Mitchell stunted the growth of his career splitting time between so many positions. Last season as a wideout, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound Mitchell caught 31 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns.

Georgia senior WR Malcolm Mitchell told reporters at SEC Media Days that his days as a two-way player may be over.

Mitchell played a little cornerback a couple of seasons ago, but he doesn't anticipate following in former Michigan State star Tony Lippett's footsteps in 2015 and pulling off the two-way trick regularly. "I need to prove that I can play a full healthy season at one position first," Mitchell said. Mitchell was the star of the show last week, bringing to the event a recently published children's book that he authored. "I have a passion for reading to kids and a passion for reading in general," Mitchell said. Mitchell caught 31 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns last season.
