Mike Mitchell is quickly becoming a media darling. I can’t think of a reason anyone in the media wouldn’t like to see Mike Mitchell do well. After all, reporters are always looking for a good story. Mike Mitchell has been overlooked by draft pundits and talking heads, If he goes on to be a successful NFL player, that is a great story. It is also one every media person can respect.
Add to this fact a man who speaks clearly and eloquently and you have a recipe for a media darling.
Jerry MacDonald of the Oakland Tribune has already stated he loves the story. ESPN has now caught on. <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft09/columns/story?columnist=chadiha_jeffri&id=4110782"> Jeff Chidiha has an interesting interview with Mike Mitchell.</a>
