Entering the draft, Klatt ranked Mitchell as his top defender on his NFL Draft Big Board.

“He reminds me a lot of the trajectory of Sauce Gardner, but we knew more about Gardner because his college team was better,” Klatt wrote. “Mitchell, with his strength, length and speed, could be on a similar path. I know this is unique, but I just have a hunch that he’s going to be phenomenal.”

Klatt ranked Mitchell as his ninth overall prospect in the draft.

Close behind Mitchell on the oddsboard is Alabama cornerback Terrion Arnold.

Klatt ranked the Crimson Tide prospect as his No. 13 prospect and said the adaptability he showed in college makes him believe he has a bright future.

“Arnold was recruited as a safety and just got better and better. He was a multi-time All-American and I think he’s got a bright future.”
