Adonai Mitchell, a former wide receiver for the Texas Longhorns, was selected in the 2024 NFL Draft after it was revealed by unnamed sources that he was “abrasive” and that he didn’t take his Type 1 diabetes diagnosis properly. Those anonymous claims didn’t deter the Indianapolis Colts, and it appears they might not even be a problem.

Ahead to the 2024 NFL Draft, unidentified scouts informed Go Long’s NFL writer Bob McGinn that Mitchell’s “abrasive” nature made him a boom-or-bust potential. One said Mitchell was “almost uncoachable,” implying that he should be continuously watched over because he gets “rude” when his blood sugar is out of control.

When his blood sugar is low, he exhibits rudeness, abrasiveness, and lack of focus during meetings. That explains why complaints about extremely, truly shitty characters come from Texas and Georgia.

Following his selection of Mitchell with the 52nd overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, Colts general manager Chris Ballard called out scouts and league executives who utilized anonymity to disparage young men, calling out the “bullsh—” that was thrown out there.

“These young lads are 21 or 22 years old. And are there folks out there who can tell me that their lives are flawless? It’s absurd. It is garbage. This child is decent. And it’s bullshit for those reports to surface.
