2019 NFL Draft Grades: Let us know what you think about the selection of Dillon Mitchell

Could he find a place with the Vikings?

NCAA Football: Oregon at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

With the second of their four seventh-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings took a wide receiver that might be able to find a place on this roster.

The Vikings selected Oregon wide receiver Dillon Mitchell with Pick #239 overall. Our friends at Addicted to Quack, SB Nation’s site for everything relating to Oregon athletics (and, possibly the best name in the whole SB Nation network) had this to say about Mitchell.

He has a shot to make the 53 man roster in Minnesota as a fourth receiver on the depth chart behind Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, and Laquon Treadwell. Mitchell will have to seriously compete to make it though. He has a decent chance of making the roster but will need to contribute on special teams.

He really could have used the senior year to improve his stock instead he will be fighting to make a roster.

Mitchell declared early for the draft after a junior year that saw him score 12 touchdowns. Who knows what the Vikings will be able to do with him at this point? We’ll get to find out.

So, sound off on what you think of the Vikings’ selection of Dillon Mitchell, folks. Let us know!


How would you grade the Vikings’ selection of Oregon WR Dillon Mitchell with the 239th selection in the 2019 NFL Draft?
