Yep. Mitchell is a typical tools player. If he put it together he has all-star potential. A risky player, but one with a potential fantastic ceiling. This isn't atypical. Some of these players make it, some of them bust in A-ball because they couldn't translate tools into skills.

There was nothing wrong with the Mitchell pick at the time.
