Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.
Justin Herbert is returning to quarterback for the Ducks in 2019, but he'll lose his top option to throw the ball to in Mitchell. He finished the regular season with a line of 75-1184-10, and Dane Brugler of The Athletic compared the 6-foot-2, 189-pound wideout to Eagles WR Nelson Agholor. We probably won't see Mitchell drafted as high as Agholor -- a first-round pick in the 2015 draft -- but he could be an early Day 2 pick because of his athleticism. It's worth noting, however, that Mitchell has had issues with drops, so that could hurt his draft stock. Jan 2 - 6:06 PM

The Athletic's Dane Brugler wrote to Twitter that Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell "reminds [him] a ton of (Philadelphia Eagles WR) Nelson Agholor."

"Lean, speedy athlete who needs to eliminate the drops, but will make plays at every level," Brugler noted when responding to a social media question about Dillon's draft declaration from earlier on Wednesday. The 6-foot-2, 189-pound Oregon product went off for a 75-1184-10 receiving line during the 2018 campaign. He's quite unlikely to be drafted as high as Agholor -- who went off the board at pick No. 20 in the 2015 draft -- but could potentially see some Day 2 love this spring.

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Mitchell (6'2/189) turned in the best season of his collegiate career in 2018, and by a considerable margin. He wrapped up the campaign having caught 75 passes for 1,184 yards and 10 touchdowns. The junior wideout does his best work in space and comes equipped with the ability to make guys miss when moving laterally. He should be able to test well in agility drills at the combine. We'll see on his pure straight-line speed. Mitchell's exact draft footing will clarify over the coming months, but at this juncture, he should be viewed as a probable Day 3 selection, with upward mobility toward Day 2.

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell caught six passes for 70 yards and one touchdown in Monday's 7-6 bowl win over Michigan State.

Mitchell (6'2/189) was asked post-game about his future, and the junior receiver said he will speak to his family before making a decision about the NFL. With quarterback Justin Herbert returning, Mitchell would be set up for another productive season at Oregon in 2019 if he stays. This season, Mitchell caught 75 passes for 1,184 yards and 10 touchdowns. That's certainly enough production to warrant an early exit, especially with his athleticism.

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell only caught one pass for nine yards in Friday's 55-15 win over Oregon State.

Mitchell didn't play the first quarter, but he came in right at the beginning of the second quarter, so he may have been serving a team suspension. Even after he entered, the star receiver had his quietest game of the season. Some of that can be explained by Justin Herbert (upper-body) leaving at half time, but it was an odd game for the junior receiver regardless. Mitchell gets a couple weeks before Oregon's bowl game.

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell went for four catches, 103 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 31-29 victory against Arizona State.

Mitchell has tied a career best with three consecutive 100-yard performances, and he has found the end zone in a career-best four straight outings. The receiver is also working on a eight-game stretch with at least four receptions. He'll try to post more big numbers next Saturday in the Civil War rivalry game against Oregon State. He racked up six grabs for 119 yards and two scores in last year's battle with the Beavers.

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell brought in eight passes for 169 yards with two touchdowns in a 32-25 loss to Utah on Saturday.

Mitchell has shown no ill effects from the concussion he suffered against Arizona, and continues to be Justin Herbert's go-to target in the passing game. Go-to target is really an understatement, at this point a pass thrown to anyone but him is a surprise. He's up to 64 receptions, and the 169 yards puts him over the thousand-yard mark. He's also scored two touchdowns in back-to-back games, and he'll try to keep that streak live next Saturday against Arizona State.

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell caught eight passes for 156 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 42-21 win over UCLA.

Mitchell, who was cleared from his concussion before the game, was able to beat UCLA underneath and deep. In the first quarter, Mitchell ran a crafty route behind the line of scrimmage that freed him up for a short score, but his biggest play came in the fourth. Mitchell was able to create some space deep downfield and Justin Herbert dropped a pass right between the numbers for a 67-yard touchdown. With today's big game, the junior has 833 yards and six touchdowns. The Ducks will head to Utah next week.

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell (concussion) was announced as a starter ahead of Saturday's game against UCLA.

There was some doubt regarding Mitchell's status, as he did not participate in practice earlier in the week. But just like QB Justin Herbert, who also suffered a concussion in Oregon's October 27 loss at Arizona, the junior wideout has been medically cleared to play against UCLA. Mitchell, a key target for Herbert in the passing game, has caught 48 passes for 677 yards and four touchdowns this season.

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell (concussion) didn't practice on Wednesday.

He hasn't practiced since getting diagnosed with a concussion following Saturday's loss to Arizona. That's a rather ominous sign for his status this weekend against UCLA.
Wed, Oct 31, 2018 01:00:00 PM

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell (concussion) did not practice on Tuesday.

Mitchell was put in the concussion protocol after sustaining a hard hit in the second half of Saturday's loss to Arizona. Both he and QB Justin Herbert (also in concussion protocol) are up in the air for this coming weekend's game against UCLA. We could be looking at a significantly diminished Ducks' offense on Saturday should neither player be ready to go by kickoff.

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell has entered the concussion protocol.

Mitchell left in the second half after taking a hard -- but clean -- hit in the 44-15 blowout loss to Arizona. It's a big loss for the Ducks if he can't go -- especially with Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert also in the concussion protocol and highly questionable for Saturday's game. Stay tuned for further updates on both players' status.

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell (upper body) finished with six receptions for a team-high 69 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 44-15 loss at Arizona.

As mentioned earlier, Mitchell was knocked out of the game in the second half with an apparent upper-body injury on a hard, clean hit. He left for the locker room and was unable to return to the game. It's uncertain if he suffered a more serious injury, or if he was held out of the game as a precaution with the result pretty much decided. We'll keep an eye on his status for next week's game against UCLA.

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell (upper body) suffered an apparent upper-body injury on a hard, but clean, hit in the third quarter of Saturday's game at Arizona.

Arizona DB Tristan Cooper laid the wood to Mitchell on a clean hit, as Justin Herbert sort of hung the receiver out to dry and he got walloped. He was down for several moments before leaving under his own power and walking off to the locker room for further evaluation. It's uncertain if he'll return, but with a lopsided score on the board when he departed, it's unlikely he'll see the field again.

Oregon junior WR Dillon Mitchell caught eight passes for 119 yards with a touchdown in a 30-27 overtime victory over Washington on Saturday.

Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert looked Mitchell's way early and often, which should surprise absolutely no one; he's been the junior's top option all year. Even going against two NFL cornerbacks, Mitchell was able to find seams, and he scored an impressive touchdown near the end of the first half. Expect more fireworks from the junior wideout next Saturday against Washington State.
