Georgia redshirt junior WR Malcolm Mitchell's right knee injury "very much has his stock in flux," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.
Mitchell tore his right ACL in the opener last season, costing him the rest of the campaign, and then re-injured the knee in late July, requiring arthroscopic surgery. His timetable is not known at this time. "When healthy, Mitchell has shown flashes of superstardom," Rang wrote. "Over his first two years in the program, he's spent time at wide receiver, cornerback, kick returner and punt returner and has been described as Georgia's most dynamic and versatile weapon since Champ Bailey." Mitchell has collected 85 catches for 1,237 yards and eight touchdowns when he's been able to stay on the field. "Mitchell possesses the combination of size, agility, straight-line speed and ball-skills to re-emerge as Georgia's top pass-catcher but he is a work in progress as a route-runner," Rang wrote. "He's explosive out of his breaks and is tough to tackle, showing not only elusiveness and vision but strength to fight through arm tackles."
