OU Safety Michael Mitchell to visit Cincinnati on April 14

On Tuesday, the Bengals will conduct a private workout with Ohio University Safety Michael Mitchell, writes Carlos Holmes. I'm not sure if this is the same as the local products working out, such as Connor Barwin, Mike Mickens, DeAngelo Smith, among other area talent. Mitchell is expected to hop on a plane after working out with the Bengals to workout with the Browns that same day, and then Oakland on Wednesday.

Big C's Scouting Report is very impressive.

Mitchell is extremely physical and packs a wallop when delivering the blow. He's a sure-tackler, wraps up well, outstanding playing inside the box, can play deep middle or in zone coverage. He is fluent in his back pedal, smooth in transition and shows good overall technique. 

Mitchell has very good ball skills and speed to play anywhere in the secondary.  He has the ability to cover slot receivers and tight ends displaying exceptional cover skills. He's an opportunistic defender leading the team with three interceptions in addition to five pass breakups and two forced fumbles last season. He was also an impact player on special teams.

Mitchell is an explosive player with a linebacker's mentality, good study habits, highly intelligent and vocal leader.
