Early years

Tennessee Titans

Mitchell was selected by the Tennessee Titans in the fourth round (117th overall) of the 1999 NFL Draft. As a rookie, he earned the position of nickel back and appeared in all 16 games. The Titans would eventually make it to Super Bowl XXXIV, where they lost to the Kurt Warner-led St. Louis Rams.

In 2000, he suffered a torn right ACL and spent the year on the injured reserve list. The next year, he appeared in 12 contests, missing the final 4 games with a sprained right knee. In 2002, he started 9 games at right cornerback in place on an injured Samari Rolle and was able to play through ankle and knee injuries. In February 2003, he underwent arthroscopic surgery in one of his ankles. During his time with the Titans he was also a core special teams player.

Dallas Cowboys

On March 20, 2003, he was signed as a free agent by the Dallas Cowboys, with the intention of playing him at the nickel back position. He suffered a serious left high ankle sprain in the final preseason game against the Oakland Raiders and spent the year on the injured reserve list. He was released on August 31, 2004.
