Osirus Mitchell aligned at wide receiver for the Mississippi State Bulldogs’ offense, predominantly on the outside. He is a sufficient-level proactive athlete, as evidenced in his suddenness off the line of scrimmage and overall body control as a route-runner. He is a willing stalk blocker in the run game and displays moments of physicality in this regard. In the passing game, he has been effective in the intermediate to deep areas of the field. He can improve at defeating press coverage with strength and hand usage. He is proficient in contested-catch situations and has also shown the hand-eye coordination and catching skills to track the ball in the air. He has some focus drops on routine catches, but also projects as a red zone threat in slant-fade and 50/50 ball situations.

Ideal Role: Developmental X wide receiver.

Scheme Fit: Multiple offense with an abundance of downfield passing concepts.
