2019 Fantasy Outlook
Despite being a seventh-round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, it could be reasonably argued Mitchell is the favorite to win the No. 3 receiving job out of training camp, with only 2016 first-round bust Laquon Treadwell and two nondescript players in Chad Beebe and Olabisi Johnson standing in his way. A 4.46 40-yard dash at the combine and a respectable 122-inch broad jump showcase some of Mitchell's tantalizing measurables, but the rookie, who just turned 21, will need to display the appropriate work ethic in order to challenge any of the aforementioned names for the position - something that likely contributed to his seventh-round slip.

The Vikings selected Mitchell in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 239th overall.
ANALYSIS
Mitchell (6-foot-1, 197 pounds) likely fell this far over concerns about his work ethic or "football character." His demonstrates itself in the production, as Mitchell won't turn 21 until mid-May yet over the last two years for Oregon turned 198 targets into 117 receptions for 1,701 yards and 14 touchdowns (59.1 percent catch rate, 8.6 YPT) in an offense that averaged under 8.0 yards per pass in that span. Mitchell is a slippery receiver who might play best in the slot, where in a best-case scenario he might eventually compare to someone like Tyler Boyd. At the combine he ran a 4.46-second 40 to go along with a 36.5-inch vertical and 122-inch broad jump. So long as he doesn't alienate Vikings coaches, Mitchell might pose a threat to Laquon Treadwell's tenuous role.
