No. 3 Adonai Mitchell, junior
When a talented receiver leaves Georgia after back-to-back national championships to come play for your team, you know the program is headed in the right direction. That’s exactly what Mitchell did and it’s paying off with the best year of his career.
Mitchell caught just nine passes over four games last season at Georgia because he missed time due to injury. Now, he’s dominating at Texas with 37 grabs for 576 yards and eight touchdowns through nine games.
Xavier Worthy came into the season as Texas’s best NFL prospect at wide receiver, but it seems like Mitchell has passed him for many evaluators, including The Athletic’s Dane Brugler who had Mitchell at No. 42 on his midseason big board.
