Mitchell wasn't the 49ers' rookie back fantasy owners focused on coming out of last year's draft, but the sixth-round pick ended up being the team's leading rusher with 963 yards on 207 carries (4.7 YPC), which was almost 700 yards ahead of Jeff Wilson amongst 49ers' backs. That he did it while appearing in just 11 games qualifies as both good news and bad. The good is that those 87.5 rushing yards per game trailed just four other backs. The bad is that he basically missed a third of the season due to injury.

There were several maladies for Mitchell, who suffered a concussion to go along with rib, shoulder, and knee injuries. The latter resulted in a "cleanup procedure" during the offseason, which is the most recent euphemism for "minor" surgery. He's expected to be full go in camp, but it's still a bit of a red flag that his debut campaign took such a physical toll on him. Mitchell reportedly plans to bulk up to around 215 pounds after playing closer to 200 as a rookie, so we'll see if that keeps him on the field.

Also working against Mitchell is Shanahan's history since joining the 49ers in 2017. During his five years on the job the 49ers have had a different leading rusher every single season: Carlos Hyde ('17), Matt Breida ('18), Raheem Mostert ('19), Wilson ('20), and Mitchell ('21). They also invested a third-round pick on Tyrion Davis-Price, who should give them a physical option they lacked last year. Between his durability concerns and San Francisco's tendency to chew up and spit out RBs, Mitchell carries enough risk to be viewed as no more than a high-end RB3.
