In all seriousness, don't discount that "first true two-way player" under Richt quote. There's a lot to that. I would imagine the head guy is carrying at least a few ounces of regret at not using Boykin more offensively. But the larger point is that Mitchell has something working in his favor that even the great Champ Bailey didn't: he has all of the offensive playbook in his working knowledge already. It will be easier to become a "true two-way player" by adding a defensive huddle as opposed to vice versa.
It's a point I tried to make earlier in the spring. The defensive side will be an easier adjustment at this point in Mitchell's development. Once the suspensions are over the coaches should have a clear idea of the best way to use him. The fact that he's only grasped parts of the offensive playbook won't get in the way like it did Boykin and Champ*.
Bonus reading: HERE I looked at Champ's numbers and projected onto Mitchell a bit.
*the Branden Smith side of that debate adds to it the "nuances" of managing a roster with two #1's on it. That's something we've delved into before. So I'm not dismissing Smith as part of the discussion. Just avoiding getting sidetracked by the brain numbing decision to let two explosive players wear the same number.
