James Mitchell TE Virginia Tech Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Good strength and effort to run through arm tackles.
  • Seems to enjoy the physical confrontation of blocking. Is willing to attack bigger defenders with explosive pop and good strength.
  • Good burst off the snap, quick hands and good balance to gain a clean release.
  • Catches with his hands away from his frame. Strong hands to pull down the contested reception.
  • A savvy, reliable pass catcher with good body control and focus. Soft hands and has the hand-eye coordination to secure wild throws.
  • Size limitations are obvious, but he's a tough pound-for-pound blocker.
  • Catches well in traffic, shields the ball from defenders with his frame, and holds on despite being hit. Will fully extend, snatch, and stay in bounds.
  • Has enough speed to challenge the seam but does not possess elite top-end speed.
Weaknesses
  • Has a smallish frame with underwhelming power, lean arms and little muscle definition.
  • Struggles tracking the ball over his shoulder.
