2018 Season Countdown: #103 Matt Mitchell
Name: Matt Mitchell
Weight: 186 lbs.
High school: Dexter (MI) Dexter
Class: Redshirt junior
Jersey number: #20
Last year: I did not rank Mitchell. He did not see game action.
Mitchell is a guy who has been grinding away for a few years on the scout team. While he’s undersized and not particularly skilled, sometimes those guys are rewarded in their upperclassman years with roles on special teams. I think Mitchell could be in line for a small-time gig on the punt coverage or punt return units, but even if not, he’s a guy constantly out there getting reps with the scout teamers.
Prediction: Backup cornerback, special teamer
