Mississippi State Football: Why Osirus Mitchell is made for today’s NFL

NCAA Football: Auburn at Mississippi State Matt Bush-USA TODAY Sports

As Osirus Mitchell owned the sideline throughout his Mississippi State tenure, he is a lethal deep threat with speed and athleticism.

Mitchell stands at 6-foot-5, 210 pounds. His height advantage is an immediate threat to corners. In addition, Mitchell is a formidable route runner. With that, he is sure to draw a lot of attention at the next level.

While Mitchell excels along the sidelines, he must improve in the slot. The modern day wideout must be an imposing threat from anywhere on the field.

In his Bulldog career, Mitchell hauled in 107 receptions for 1,413 yards and 14 touchdowns in 46 games. Depending on where he is drafted and what system he is in, look for Mitchell to steadily improve as a pro.

Hail State!
