Cowboys draft Terrance Mitchell in 7th

May, 10, 2014
IRVING, Texas – The pick: Terrance Mitchell, cornerback, Oregon

My take: The Cowboys, who crave creating more turnovers, added a cornerback with some ball skills. The 5-foot-11, 192-pound Mitchell picked off five passes last season and seven during his career with the Ducks. He was a three-year starter who should compete for a roster spot as a rookie.

Notable: Mitchell ran a disappointing 4.63-second 40-yard dash at the combine, but he cut his time to 4.43 at his pro day. … He left school early despite feedback from the NFL advisory committee that he wouldn’t be an early round pick. … Needs to work on his tendency to draw flags.
