Donovan Mitchell is an athletic, skilled combo guard that can really score the basketball.  He has a wide array of ball handling moves, and he has the speed, agility, and body control to regularly finish plays around the basket.  Plus, he can really get going when he knocks down jumpers.​

On the other hand, he can be streaky with his jump shot, and he may be in between positions.  But he is having a solid sophomore season as he has played well in big games against Indiana and Duke, and Mitchell could likely end up getting selected in the first round of the upcoming draft.
