Wonder what Raider fans think of him...

For a second round pick they gave up to draft him I'd assume they are bitter.

For those that are familiar with his game to some extent, is he an upgrade over what's currently on our roster? The recent signings have me thinking this is Gettleman and co. improving the overall depth of our roster and getting us better from bottom, to top. He mentioned a while back getting the bottom half of our roster better with talent and it seems he is doing so I am just not familiar with DJ Moore or Mitchell.

Apparently Mitchell is terrible covering wideouts (we all heard that), but has proven to be very good covering tight ends. Could be a good asset if proven to be true.

Great another career backup defensive back we're giving an opportunity to start because we have zero money to work with thanks to cap genius Hurney

Mitchell was graded by Pro Football Focus with a score of -5.1 in pass coverage last season, allowing opposing quarterbacks a passer rating of 130.2 against receivers Mitchell covered.


Rivera will get production out of him, or he won't see the field regularly.

Given the overall grade he got in pass pro last year, I'd say he's a dud

just like naka right?



everybody in the organization is just hoping this guy is better than he looks... it's the same approach we've had with safety for a very, very long time. pick up 3 guys, find one that won't suck... if he turns out to be good, let him walk next year... rinse, repeat.

Mitchell will compete with Nakamura and D.J. Campbell for the starting spot at strong safety.
“Whoever's there, I'm ready to compete against,” Mitchell said. “Really the opportunity was just to good. They said the best man was going to play.”





Also this tidbit from the article.

Free agent nickelback Captain Munnerlyn has been offered a 1-year deal from Chicago, according to a league source. Munnerlyn has said his preference is to re-sign with the Panthers, who could try to match the Bears' offer.
