"The Dolphins may have picked up a true diamond in the rough this past week. One of the various Miami Dolphins free agents signed this past week is a ball hawking speedy cornerback who was projected to be drafted in the fourth or fifth round before injuring his knee during a "Pro Day" workout in March."

Ht., Wt.: 5-11, 190
40 Time: 4.34

ANALYSIS: A terrific athlete with a huge upside, Mitchell made major strides last season as a senior. Offers the computer numbers to eventually develop into a starting cornerback in the NFL yet needs time and repetition to fully learn the position.

The kid is suppose to have plently of upside to him, see link bellow

Very fast! But got hurt at workouts and most likely will spend the year on the DL.

4.34 40! Also returns punts and kickoffs

Is this the kid that hurt his knees during the cone drill? I heard Saban liked him.
Saban does like him, I think in his Sunday Press Conference transcript he talked about him and I got the idea that Saban regards him like an Ogunleye, pick him up undrafted, on the DL for a yerar rehabbing and then a good cog to slip in when he is healthy.

How bad is his injury? They say it is possible for him to be able to play in August.

He's already had surgery and he's rehabing now....so that gives him about 3-4 months till hes about 85-95% ready depending on his personal recovery time.... but in about 2 months he'll be able to go full out running just no contact....So August would be a possibility but he's also got to get into "hittin' shape" so give him a couple weeks for that....

I'm all for taking a chance on this kid.

It seems that he played WR for all but one year and was only marginally successful, but after his move to corner, the Missouri coaching staff was all about this kid.

I stand by this mentality, which I have stood by since with got Nick Saban:

Just trust that what Nick Saban does is right.
