According to the Seattle Times, Western Washington QB Scott Mitchell has a good chance of being selected in the NFL Draft this weekend.

Mitchell threw for 2,778 yards and 25 TDs and has been praised for his mobility and decision-making skills. The Falcons, Bengals and Giants have been among the teams most interested in him.
