Offensive woes have been the story of season so far for the Georgia Bulldogs (5-2, 3-2 in SEC), but one player apparently immune to the hard times around him is senior wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell.
In Georgia’s past five games, Mitchell has pulled in 28 catches, three of which were touchdowns, for 417 yards, more than his entire total in the 2014 season. Despite his team’s horrendous red zone touchdown percentage and an even worse third down conversion rate, the receiver is quietly having a career-year in Athens.
While Mitchell’s play still might not be strong enough to get him drafted come April, the No. 7-ranked WR prospect in 2011 according to ESPN is finally starting to make a big impression in Athens during his final season with the team.
