Mississippi State Football: Which NFL landing spot is best for Osirus Mitchell?

While the Cincinnati Bengals must address the offensive line to protect superstar quarterback Joe Burrow, Osirus Mitchell could steal the spotlight if drafted in the later rounds.

The Bengals showcased their offensive potential late last season, as they are developing a strong ensemble cast for Burrow. In addition to emerging star receivers Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd, Cincinnati needs another deep threat with size.

Mitchell stands at 6-foot-5, 210 pounds. He is a pure athlete and mismatch nightmare. Given his speed and ability to get open, Mitchell’s addition could take the Bengals’ offense a level higher.

In arguably the NFL’s most formidable defensive division, Cincinnati must elevate their receiving corps to have a shot at the AFC North. Though Mitchell may not be an immediate starter, look for him to learn from Higgins and Boyd. Now that the Bengals have moved on from A.J. Green, Mitchell could be the perfect downfield weapon along the sidelines.

Hail State!
