2014 NFL Draft: Georgia wideout Malcolm Mitchell hints at early entry

Paul Abell-USA TODAY Sports

The jack-of-all-trades receiver and defensive back is making waves about a possible jump to the NFL after next season, both for himself and some teammates.

Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell gave a recent quote that may have hinted at an early entry into the 2014 NFL Draft for the Bulldogs' do-anything sophomore.

Seth Emerson of the Macon Telegraph writes that Mitchell talked to reporters about the vaunted 2011 Georgia recruiting class that included erstwhile running back Isaiah Crowell. Mitchell said, "A lot of us came in and did play early. A lot of us are playing now. A lot of us will be leaving next year as just juniors. I still believe that our recruiting class will be big, and we did make a difference in some areas."

Mitchell is among the highest-profile members of that 2011 class, having appeared in 11 of 13 games this year for the Bulldogs. The sophomore wideout from Valdosta snatched 40 passes for 572 yards and four touchdowns this season, also logging some time on the defensive side of the ball. Emerson speculates that a full year exclusively at receiver could boost Mitchell's draft stock.
