Player Notes Pros

  • It is hard not to like Mitchell Wilcox's versatility when you watch his college tape 

  • Flexed out in the slot often, moved around offensive backfields to provide multiple looks

  • Knack for slipping into the blind spot of defenders on the second level of field 

  • Very athletic, possesses mobility to effectively develop as an NFL pass catcher

  • Looks like WR in the open field, smooth route runner, elite processor & coverage reader 

  • Consistently makes sharp cuts & keeps defenders on their toes in man coverage 

  • Speed to stretch the field vertically, while also having the quickness & finesse laterally 

  • Great understanding of where & when to break off his route against man & zone 

  • Reliable hands catcher with large target radius, experience lining up all over the field

  • Multiple gears to work into windows in 2nd level, eats safeties & LBs in man coverage

  • Very snappy in & out of his breaks to quickly uncover & generate throwing windows

  • Fearless of big contact across the middle of the field with a large catch radius

  • Impressive ability to control body in mid air & to work back to inaccurate balls  

Player Notes Cons

  • May struggle at the pro level with physical play unless he's able to overhaul his frame

  • Doesn't inspire with his ability to close cushion versus soft zone or off coverage

  • Not developed enough as a route runner yet to really put defenders in a bind & create

  • Needs to get better at positioning his frame to the ball & protecting the catch point

  • In line blocking won’t be strong suit because of his body type & lack of play strength 

  • Won’t make too many things happen in the open field with the ball in his hands

  • Maybe a big slot WR at the next level until he gets in strength & conditioning program
