Quinyon Mitchell might have had the best week at the Senior Bowl
Already a strong candidate to be taken on day two of the draft, Quinyon Mitchell will be soaring to the first-round conversation. His Senior Bowl week might have been one of the most dominant out of any prospects in attendance last week. The cornerback coming out of Toledo is someone that many scouts are enthralled by.
He does not possess the perfect size for an ideal NFL cornerback, but he plays aggressively and with good technique. Tomlin was in his ear to go up against the best receiver at the Senior Bowl, Roman Wilson out of Michigan. Mitchell did a tremendous job in coverage all week and might have gotten himself in the first-round conversation because of it.
He still has a long way to go before he could potentially hear his name called on night one of the draft. If he can test well at the combine, then expect a strong possibility for the Toledo product to get plenty of first-round buzz. The Steelers might see him as too rich of a pick at 20, but he has started to show that he could be a strong outside corner option in the NFL.
Pittsburgh needs an upgrade opposite of Porter, so maybe taking Mitchell in the first round wouldn't be too crazy. It would be a better value pick in the second round, but it is unlikely that he will still be available by the time the Steelers pick. Mitchell might not have the ideal frame of a cornerback, but his play has been tremendous thus far.
