2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about ELIJAH MITCHELL: Louisiana, 5102 215 4.35. Three-year starter, Erath, LA. Has been a part of a two-back system with fellow draft prospect Trey Ragas. Second-team All Sun Belt in 2018 and 2019, first-team in 2020. Mitchell scored 41 touchdowns over the past three seasons combined. He is built like an inside runner that runs with a no-nonsense approach. Prefers north-south movement and at the very least will put his head down and push the pile when nothing is there. There is a natural skill set here that can find a home on the back end of a depth chart. Stocky build with functional thickness and power. Runs behind his pads even though he prefers missing tackles via movement, shows some nastiness to lower his shoulder and push piles. A slasher with solid one-cut and go potential. Immediate burst once he finds the running lane. Balanced footwork. Gets on the defense in a hurry and won’t spend too much time dancing behind the line of scrimmage. Consistently productive inside runner that has a nose for space. Lacks a standout trait to his game. Explosion and breakaway speed won’t create a lot of big plays. May have early struggles when adjusting to the speed of the NFL, isn’t working with a lot of margin athletically. Needs to be nearly perfect with his reads. Didn’t show a lot of versatility in the passing game over his career. Will put the ball on the ground stemming from poor ball handling. 2020 stats: 878 yds, 6.2 ypc, 8 TD, 16 rec, 153 yds, 9.6 ypr. Fourth/fifth round. (A-31, H-9 3/4, BP-17, SS-4.20).
