The Minnesota Vikings have just made the second of their four seventh-round selections, and they’ve added a piece to their wide receiver corps.
With Pick #239 in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings have selected Dillon Mitchell, a wide receiver from the University of Oregon.
Lance Zierlein of NFL.com had a sixth-round grade on Mitchell. Here’s what he had to say about him in his scouting report.
Early entry receiver hoping to ride the wave of a heavily-targeted, highly productive junior campaign. Mitchell isn’t big, has average speed and loses focus as a pass catcher, but his ball skills show up on tape and he’s a natural talent with the ball in his hands. While his routes are undisciplined at this time, they should get much better with coaching. Mitchell has talent but needs to put the time in and take the coaching in order to become more than a WR4/WR5.
Mitchell did have 12 touchdowns in his final season with the Ducks, but it doesn’t sound like Zierlein is super high on him at this point. Maybe Mitchell will prove him wrong.
Welcome to Minnesota, Dillon!
