5. Terrance Mitchell
Terrance Mitchell led the defense with 10 tackles, but when one of your corners leads the team in takedowns, you know your defense is in trouble.
Mitchell really struggled in coverage during this one, taking a grade of 43.6. For the season, Mitchell has a grade of 61.1, which ranks 50th among the 109 corners graded by PFF.
It was a little surprising to see Mitchell ranked so low 1/4 of the way through the season, because he’s not someone you notice making a ton of mistakes. That said, his current grade of 61.5 is the worst of his career.
Fellow corner Denzel Ward saved the defense with the late pick of Dak Prescott, but as you’ve seen, the stocks are down almost cross the board for the defense.
For the season, Ward is PFF’s fifth rated corner.
