With an opportunity to reestablish themselves as a contender in the Big 12 North, the Tigers…
Prospect Profile: Shirdonya Mitchell
Ht: 5-11 Wt: 190 40: 4.34 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Former receiver who moved to cornerback as a junior then became a fulltime starter last season posting 39/4/6. Averaged 24.1 yards on 22 kick returns as a junior.
Positives: Explosive athlete with top size/speed numbers. Adequate footwork back pedaling in reverse, quickly flips his hips and loses nothing in transition. Displays a great burst of speed as well as quickness getting to the action. Good eye/hand coordination and hands for the pick. Plays to his forty time and a very sudden defender. Adequate job diagnosing the action.
Negatives: Gets a little high and mechanical in his back pedal. Slow getting off blocks to make a play on the ball. Still raw in many aspects of the position.
Analysis: A terrific athlete with a huge upside, Mitchell made major strides last season as a senior. Offers the computer numbers to eventually develop into a starting cornerback in the NFL yet needs time and repetition to fully learn the position.
