RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Dolphins signed Mitchell to a four-year contract this off-season with the idea that he will be one of their anchors on the interior of their defensive line. Mitchell has never been much of a pass rusher but does have the ability to clog up running lanes and accumulate tackles.
Mitchell is expected to be Houston's starting nose tackle. He started three games there last season and now takes over with the loss of Shaun Cody.
Mitchell, a back-up defensive tackle, will help the team by providing depth up the middle.
The switch the a 3-4 base defense and the release of Amobi Okoye gives Mitchell a shot to start at nose guard. The Texans have loved his effort and motor since drafting him in 2010, and he figures to duke it out with Shaun Cody in training camp.
The Texans love Mitchell's effort and there's an opportunity to get some playing time at defensive tackle. He'll be part of the rotation.
