Just saw this, not sure if this has already been discussed. I hope he can 'catch' on.

 

WR Carlton Mitchell, South Florida, 6’4", 212, 24 years old

Mitchell was drafted by the Browns in the sixth round of the 2010 draft. He played 52 snaps over 16 games with the Browns in two seasons, catching only three passes for 32 yards as injuries and ineffectiveness kept him off the field and on the practice squad. After two unproductive seasons and after struggling with a leg injury in camp, he was released by the Browns in late August 2012. He was signed and released by the Jaguars in a three-day span in November 2012.

That's why its important for these kids to have degrees when they leave USF, no matter what level they play on. I wish him the best.

Not implying anything about Mitchell personally, making a generalization. (Maybe free agent Darrell Scott can come back and finish his degree)

 

And sorry, didn't read the link. So often on this board the link is for the quoted material.

He left after his RS JR season...4 years academically and I think he did get his degree

i still find it crazy that he left early.

 

He's got ALL the physical tools. I think he just needed to refine his game a bit.

Another year wouldn't have changed his NFL prospects much. He spent three years on the same NFL roster, there's no reason he couldn't "refine his game" just as well there as he could have at USF. Dude had a short window to make NFL money; anyone have any idea how much money he's made?

Agreed... not to mention, with the coaching change, he had no idea how his senior season was going to go. It was a risk to leave when he did, but, judging by what we saw in Skip's 3 years, he probably struck while the iron was hot.

Looks like 6th round picks get contracts worth half a mil. 8 years after I graduated from USF and I haven't sniffed that.
