Mel Kiper discusses the impact of the transfer portal on Adonai Mitchell’s rise in the NFL Draft rankings.

The Texas Longhorns put on a commanding performance against Oklahoma State in the Big 12 Title game, and with their eyes set on the College Football Playoff, there is a lot of buzz surrounding the team and its players. Conference championship weekend provided a platform for NFL Draft prospects to showcase their skills, with Texas wide receiver Adonai ‘AD’ Mitchell catching the attention of NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper. Kiper believes that Mitchell’s performance in the Big 12 Championship game could have a positive impact on his draft status next April.

After transferring from Georgia, where he won back-to-back national championships, Mitchell is having a standout season with career highs in every receiving category. This decision turned out to be the right move for him, as he has excelled at Texas, averaging 16 yards per catch with 10 touchdowns. He put on an impressive display in the Big 12 Championship game, scoring a touchdown early in the game and finishing with six receptions in total. His performance has earned him praise and attention from NFL draft analysts, further boosting his draft stock.

Measuring at 6’4 and weighing 195 pounds, Mitchell possesses a great catch radius and excels in tracking the ball and getting late separation. He has been recognized as one of the top draft-eligible receivers and currently holds an early second-round grade. With the Longhorns set to face Washington in the CFP Semifinal game on New Year’s Day, Mitchell will have another opportunity to showcase his skills on a big stage.

As the Longhorns gear up for their first-ever playoff appearance in program history, the spotlight is on players like Adonai Mitchell, who have the potential to make a significant impact and garner attention from NFL scouts. Mitchell’s journey from Georgia to Texas has been a remarkable one, and his performance in the Big 12 Championship game has only solidified his status as a top NFL Draft prospect. His combination of size, skills, and performance in high-stakes games makes him a player to watch as he continues to make his mark in college football.
