The Washington Redskins have selected Wolf Pack wide receiver Marko Mitchell in the 7th round of the NFL Draft. Mitchell was a compensatory pick, selected 34th (in the 7th round,) number 243 overall.
Mitchell was a first-team All-WAC selection his senior season at Nevada. He led the Pack with 61 catches for 1141 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Mitchell really impressed the scouts with his speed at the NFL combine, running the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds.
