So, is Malcolm Mitchell healthy, or not?
Year of the Dawg has the tweet timeline. It starts good, and ends kind of scary.
We have some decent receivers, but none have come close to approaching the caliber of playmaker Tampa has shown to be. Marlon Brown maybe, but he's just had the one game so far. Malcolm Mitchell on the other hand, has shown the speed, route running, ability to adjust when the ball is in the air, and the hands, to be a truly elite player off the edge. Aside from AJ Green, he's shown as much talent as any WR Georgia has ever had. In a game this big, we need him as a threat outside. Charles, White, Bennett, King, and others can work underneath. Brown, when Murray can hit him, has shown the ability to make plays over the top. Mitchell can make more, and can come underneath or across the middle. He, unlike others, has shown that innate ability to take an 8 yd slant, beat an angle, and turn it in to an 80 yd TD. Hopefully, the staff was just being cautious, and the kid will be out there near 100% when the Cocktail Party starts. His health is almost as important as Isaiah Crowell's.
