Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo
Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo has consulted more than two dozen mock drafts from reputable national outlets and compiled a list of players most frequently mocked as draft selections in the latter portion of the first round (picks 20-32) who could be available when the Packers are on the clock at No. 25 overall.

Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo

Height/Weight: 6-0, 195

Key stats: Started 40 games over the past three seasons and set the school's career record with 46 passes broken up, to go with six interceptions.

College honors: Named first-team All-Mid-American Conference twice, earning third-team All-America recognition from the Associated Press in 2022 and then second-team honors in '23.

Background/other info: Well-built, athletic cover corner who has been rising up draft boards since clocking a 4.33-second 40 at the combine, which ranked second at the position, and putting up 20 bench-press reps, first among cornerbacks. Established himself as a top prospect in '22, leading the FBS with 25 passes defensed (five INTs plus 20 PBUs, a school record), with four of the picks coming in one game against Northern Illinois, two returned for TDs. Then ranked second nationally in passes broken up in '23 with 18 (plus one INT). Was named a semifinalist for the Chuck Bednarik Award as the nation's top defensive player, the first MAC player to earn such recognition since 2017. Was reportedly viewed as the top performing cornerback during Senior Bowl week and very well may not last until the second half of the first round.
