Most of these watch lists are pretty predictable. Then sometimes, you get a curve ball throw your way.
I'll just say I was not expecting Arkansas to have anyone named to the Butkus Award watch list, the award given to the best linebacker in America. This is similar to how I did not expect any Hogs to be named to the Thorpe Award list (best defensive back) and none were.
Mitchell is a senior linebacker who, in 2013, started eight games and played in 11. He made 77 tackles, including notching double-digit tackles against Auburn and Samford. He made one sack last season in the finale against LSU.
