RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

After signing a five-year, $25 million contract with the Steelers in 2014, Mitchell turned in a respectable but disappointing season. Although he increased his total tackles from 66 to 71, he had no interceptions, and failed to record a sack for the first time since 2010. A revamped Pittsburgh defense could benefit from an experienced player like Mitchell, who still warrants some consideration in IDP formats.

2014

Mitchell recorded a career-high 66 tackles in his first full season as a starter. He didn't play much with the Raiders in his previous four seasons, so the totals from last year are likely the biggest indication of what you can expect from his production in that department. Where he provides his biggest upside is his ability to force turnovers and get to the quarterback. Last season, Mitchell recorded 3.5 sacks, four interceptions, and two forced fumbles. His nose for the football should make him a solid IDP option again in 2014.

2013

After recording 41 tackles (32 solo) last season in Oakland, Mitchell will compete for Carolina's starting strong safety position.

2012

Mitchell will serve as a back-up defensive back for the Raiders in 2012.

2010

Mitchell will see more playing time in his second season, but he is behind tackle-machine Tyvon Branch on the depth chart and will only see the field in passing situations.

2009

Mitchell will begin the season as a reserve safety. The Raiders reached to take him in the draft; so should starter Michael Huff struggle, Mitchell could have the opportunity to make an impact in his rookie season.
