Former Georgia wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell performed today at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and though he ran a fairly decent 40 yard dash, clocking in at 4.45 seconds, what really made his workout was an insane catch he made.
As can be seen in the highlight below, Mitchell’s hands are the star of the show. One hand slows down the ball and the other does a short juggling act before reeling it in completely and Mitchell subsequently taking off.
A former four-star recruit from southern Georgia, Mitchell is unlikely to be a first-round pick despite a decent 40 time and solid hands. Playing in a run-heavy offense under longtime Georgia coach Mark Richt, Mitchell never had a 1,000 yard season though he did post 174 catches for 2,350 yards and 16 touchdowns.
But a system is not indicative of a player’s skills and given how the Combine this year did not feature any absolute stud receivers, what with Ole Miss’ Laquon Treadwell and Baylor’s Corey Coleman opting to sit out the 40 yard dash, Mitchell at least did a good enough job of upping his stock.
