Mitchell had 865 yards on 58 receptions and four touchdowns for the Bulldogs last season, starting every game.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein had this to say about Mitchell in his draft profile:

Mitchell was hampered by injuries in the past and inconsistent quarterback play this year, but there is no doubting his ball skills and smoothness as a route runner. His speed is just average and he doesn't get as much separation as teams like underneath, but he's tough, can make contested catches and has the type of personal and football character that will have scouts pulling for him in their draft rooms. Mitchell will be a 24-year-old rookie.

NFL Media's Gil Brandt added the following about Mitchell at Georgia's pro day:

Wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell – 6-0, 197 – stood on his combine numbers. He's a very athletic guy and worked out well at the pro day.

Jones appears to fit the mold of what head coach Kyle Shanahan has sought in the past — a smart and accurate passer who can manage his offense well, à la Kirk Cousins, Matt Ryan, and Jimmy Garoppolo. It's hard for many fans to look past the possibility of passing on Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State, though. Many among the media feel the two are better long-term prospects, too. Both are seen as more athletic prospects with potentially higher upsides. Not only could they turn out to be great in the pocket, but their athleticism could provide Shanahan with an added dimension
