Raiders sign second round pick Michael Mitchell


The Raiders and Michael Mitchell have agreed to terms on a four year contract, this according to David White of the SF Chronicle.

Mitchell’s selection brought draft coverage to a halt as many were sent scrambling for any information they could gather on the former Ohio Bobcat.

Since the draft, Mitchell has endeared himself to Raider fans with a humble attitude and a reel of fierce hits sure to get the attention of Roger Goodell. The rookie safety will be given every opportunity to gain a starting role as the Raiders enter camp with just three other safeties on the roster.

With the announcement of Mitchell’s deal, it leaves the heavy lifting of negotiating a contract with the seventh pick in the draft, Darrius Heyward-Bey, and the newest member of the Rosenhaus family, Louis Murphy, to be done in order to get the rookies into camp.
