WR Adonai Mitchell, IND (1 Viewer)

I'm not a jersey number guy, don't care, but I did like that he chose #10 to represent the number of WR's chosen before him.

Hopefully he can bottle up all that spite and disrespect he's feeling, channel his inner ASB, and use this as motivation to bring to hone his considerable talents.

For real this feeling in him may not last, and I'm not saying he's lazy or did not put the work in before as I have no idea, but I must say seeing him so agitated about slipping in the draft has me a little higher on him.

There is this. OTOH now he looks even more like Donte Moncrief. Dropping him even further :P

#Colts WR Adonai Mitchell is having an impressive rookie minicamp. Just took a crosser to the house from roughly 70 yards out.

Here’s the play I was talking about. In a real game, #Colts rookie WR Adonai Mitchell might’ve been tackled before scoring. But this is still an explosive play nonetheless.

I wish they showed the release, too, because it was filthy.

Also got to give the kid props for leaning into Indiana by wearing Larry Bird shorts, circa 1981. :hifive:

“[Adonai] Mitchell continues to flash his potential and made arguably the play of the day during a seven-on-seven period. Richardson launched a deep ball down the sideline to Mitchell, who, after beating cornerback Darrell Baker Jr., contorted his body to make an over-the-shoulder grab that drew a roar of approval from the offense.”
 
I like that he is leaning into his health and trying to see the best ways to manage his diabetes. Blood sugar maintenance can be complex and affects your brain function, mood, and thinking. My Sister dealt with this her whole life and ended up in the hospital a couple of times. We could only tell things were off when she would not act like herself to significant degrees, and she could usually feel the effects of blood sugar shifts. If you can not detect it, your behavior can become erratic. It can be challenging. The food measurement and diet can help quite a bit. She had times when she could not say for sure she was having an issue, and that is when it can affect how you act and respond. I know they have better ways to manage this now, but keeping up with your body still takes due diligence.

My biggest concern is the Alec Pierce role in this offense was just a terrible role last year. Pierce is a decent player and probably Mitchell is a little better, but regardless if we get wind that he's replacing Pierce in that role I will pretty much guarantee he doesn't put up fantasy numbers. The Colts were having a deep guy run cardio all season without even glancing in that direction. It was so obvious and across multiple QBs that I think it's the design of the offense. Now, if he can be a better Josh Downs or they move Pittman somehow, I have no problem with the player or the team.

He'll probably start in a low volume role primarily due to Richardson and Taylor lending itself to a heavy running team and their #1WR is a possession guy.

But the problem has been Pierce. We might have different definitions of decent but he's literally been the second worst WR in the entire NFL at getting open since he entered the league and the WR that's been worse, just retired. That was Devante Parker. I'm not at all blaming the QB or scheme for not wanting to throw downfield often to the guy that's always covered.

It has not helped that the QB's who have logged the most snaps the last two years are weak armed (at this stage of his career) Ryan and Minshew. Richardson is far more ideal for a deep threat type of WR, but it's still on that WR to get open which at this point in his career Pierce has been absolutely awful at doing.

So I got no doubts he was drafted to fill the Pierce role, but to do actually do it well.

Pierce is not a threat to Mitchell and I don’t think Mitchell will be fantasy relevant in 2024. I like the pick for the Colts, just not for fantasy. I just don’t think AR can support 3 WRs. I think Downs takes a step upwards this year.
