Twitter reacts to the selection of Northwestern CB Cameron Mitchell
The general manager of the Cleveland Browns, Andrew Berry, continues his habit of drafting cornerbacks in each draft since he took over. The team places a lot of emphasis on defensive backs to counter all the firepower that the AFC has at quarterback and wide receiver. This continued as the team selected Northwestern cornerback Cameron Mitchell in the 2023 NFL draft.
Fans and players took to Twitter to show their support for another Northwestern cornerback joining the team. He is a player with the body type to potentially play in the slot or as a safety at the next level. Let’s look at how Twitter feels about the team taking Cam Mitchell at pick no. 142.
Cam Mitchell feels like a good special tms pick. Played 89 st snaps last year

Dane Brugler was very high on Cam Mitchell.
85th on his board.
Mitchell also does really well compared to historical data. Just below a pro bowl average.

Cam Mitchell seems more like their answer to safety/nickel than anything outside
— Rodney Stokes (@RodneyStokes21) April 29, 2023
Love the Cam Mitchell pick. Here's your nickel but he still can play outside (which makes him valuable than a 5'8" slot-only corner).

Cam Mitchell has kind of a safety build seems likely he will play there and at Nickel CB

Cameron Mitchell was drafted with pick 142 of round 5 in the 2023 draft class. He scored a 8.87 #RAS out of a possible 10.00. This ranked 253 out of 2222 CB from 1987 to 2023. https://t.co/ADJNdBprmC pic.twitter.com/IhJtUYtzkh

Really like the Browns reuniting Greg Newsome with Cameron Mitchell. Mitchell was the best available CB and has really good eyes in zone and great ball skills. Fluid with clean feet too. Lots of play where he disrupts the catch point like this: pic.twitter.com/Bni6ZHTgr2

Very interested to see what the #Browns’ plans are for Cameron Mitchell.
Hasn’t played in the slot much at Northwestern, but has the agility to contribute there. More of a press-man style field corner.
