2021 NFL Draft Prospect: Myron Mitchell, WR, UAB

Myron Mitchell UAB
We need to start talking about Myron Mitchell and Austin Watkins when we talk about wide receivers in the 2021 NFL Draft.

UAB has been ballin in 2020. When it is not Austin Watkins pulling down touchdowns, it is Myron Mitchell. Mitchell has been one of the most impressive players in 2020. He has really shot up my board because he is making plays left and right.

Mitchell is a 6010 wide receiver from Jasper, Alabama and came to the Blazers after playing at Butler Community College. Mitchell was the 49th best player in the state of Alabama when he left high school, but had to go to Butler to ultimately get a shot at the FBS.

Mitchell played in 19 games at Butler CC and finished with 42 receptions for 510 yards and 2 touchdowns. He would land on UAB and boy did he impress. He used his redshirt in 2018 and as a redshirt junior last year he played in all 14 games.

Mitchell played 14 games last year and hauled in 34 receptions for 554 yards and scored four times. He is a great return man too though. He finished with 19 kick returns for 403 yards and 1 touchdown.

Myron Mitchell has been a beast in 2020. He has 21 receptions for 306 yards and has scored twice this year.

NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:

UAB Blazers are 3-1 already this year and it is because their offense is impressive. Spencer Brown their running back has been a beast, Austin Watkins has been making plays and Myron Mitchell has stepped his game up to new heights. Mitchell is a big bodied wide out with great hands. Mitchell will make you pay, and I love stories about JUCO players who step up and show out. UAB recruits well, and they starting to run the Conference USA. This team is amazing, and Mitchell is proving we need to be talking about him as well. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner
