S CHARLES MITCHELL – MISS STATE – 5-11, 202
Thick build. Physical player. Good hitter and tackler. Breaks down into good position and wraps up his targets. Hits with power. Comes up quickly in run defense. Aggressive, but under control. Finds the ball and gets in on the tackle. Good box player. Has the agility and body control to move in tight spaces so the can get to the runner. Comfortable playing in traffic as well as out in space. Fearless when it comes to throwing his body around on run plays. Takes good angles to the ball. Good STer.
Coverage skills are the big issue. Played deep a lot. Doesn’t show great instincts or cover skills. At his best keeping things in front of him and then attacking the ball. Had 4 career INTs, all in 2009. Only broke up 7 career passes.
