5. WR Malcolm Mitchell

When it comes to wide receivers, there are always the high-profile ones that fly off the boards in the first round, hoping that they become half of what Julio Jones, Odell Beckham and A.J. Green did. And though the likelihood might be very small, Malcolm Mitchell has the tools and abilities to turn into a very reliable player at the next level.

Though his career has been hampered by injuries, Mitchell has been a consistent recipient from the University of Georgia offense, and there is little doubt that he can continue to develop better separation skills and take on the likes of the Jaguars’ Allen Hurns. Both of these players may never light up the stat columns, but will always be a great option.

Mitchell will probably find his way into the fourth or fifth round in this year’s draft, and Atlanta may be ready to give the Georgia Bulldog talent a chance.
