Malcolm Mitchell standing out for Pats

WR Malcolm Mitchell - the Patriots fourth-round draft choice from Georgia - had four of Tom Brady's 25 completions during Friday's intrasquad scrimmage.

The Patriots are managing his availability (likely with his knee in mind), as he's been held out of two practices, but he seems to pick up right where he left off upon returning to the field.

The writer feels Mitchell looks like the 'X' receiver with the highest upside traits-wise -- he's fast, runs good routes and has made an early impression in terms of grasping some of the complex concepts in the team's scheme. Past X receivers have been Aaron Dobson and most recently Brandon LaFell, so there is certainly some fantasy relevance should Mitchell win this job.
