ADONAI MITCHELL PRODUCTION PROFILE

Although AD Mitchell was a three-star on 247 and a consensus low four-star, he decided to sign with powerhouse Georgia and quickly made his mark the moment he stepped on campus.

As a true freshman, he started 12 of 15 games, securing 29 receptions for 428 yards and four touchdowns. He proved his was clutch by scoring in each of the team’s CFP games en route to his first national title.

As a sophomore, he only played four games due to a nasty high ankle sprain. He only posted nine receptions for 134 yards and three touchdowns, but once again, he made his presence felt in the CFP, where he scored against Ohio State and TCU.

Mitchell surprisingly left the back-to-back title winners to play with Quinn Ewers and Xavier Worthy at Texas. Mitchell and Worthy were Ewers’ 1A and 1B, and their games meshed well enough to lead the team to the CFP. During the season, he put up career-highs in receptions (55), yards (845), and touchdowns (11). He capped his career off with another CFP touchdown against Washington.

ADONAI MITCHELL NFL COMBINE & RELATIVE ATHLETIC SCORE (RAS)

Adonai Mitchell scored the highest WR RAS Score from the 2024 NFL Combine with a 9.98.

BOTTOM LINE

The Quinn Ewers–Xavier Worthy–AD Mitchell trio was unstoppable this season, a significant reason for Texas’ College Football Playoff run. All Mitchell does is win, leaving college with two national titles at Georgia and a CFP berth at Texas.

Mitchell was lethal against single coverage, hauling six touchdowns against that coverage in 2023. At Georgia, Mitchell was used as a vertical burner, but his underrated route tree expanded, and he has the size advantage over his teammate Xavier Worthy.

Mitchell has the size and burners to be an auto-first down and big play waiting to happen in the NFL. Per PFF, 84.4% of his receptions went for a first down in 2023 (second-best in FBS). The ceiling is real, and it’s yet to be reached. Mitchell has the natural size and traits to become a consistent playmaker in the league.

AD Mitchell flourished under Todd Monken at Georgia and Steve Sarkisian at Texas — showing his ability to perform at the highest level under two of the greatest offensive minds in football.
