Well at least he is a clog the middle guy; no wait 20 combined tackles.. wrong again.
We might be focusing on the big dollars needed to re-sign JJ when we should think about who we place around him to make rings more available. To me a good nose and an ILB would be a huge start.
Mitchell has done everything asked but still seems a tweener & not the prototypical 3-4 nose guard. He consistently gets moved off line of scrimmage unable to collapse pocket though he can penetrate. Agreed, long overdue to address position with a higher selection.
