Bo Levi Mitchell is going to have a busy month of December.
The two-time Grey Cup champion, Grey Cup MVP and CFL Most Outstanding Player has five total NFL workouts on the calendar, per sources.
The Minnesota Vikings will fly Mitchell in for a workout on December 5 to get the circuit started while more than 10 teams have inquired about wanting an up-close look.
Mitchell capped yet another stellar season in 2018 by leading the Calgary Stampeders to a CFL championship. The 28-year-old became the first player in league history to throw for more than 5,000 yards without having a single receiver record 1,000 yards. Despite an ever-changing receiving core, Mitchell adapted on the fly and still led the CFL in touchdown passes with 35.
Since entering the CFL in 2012, Mitchell has compiled a 69-15-2 regular season win-loss record. That works out to a winning percentage over .800 the top mark in history (Doug Flutie is second at .746, Dave Dickenson third at .717) After Mitchell took over the starting quarterback job in Calgary during the 2014 season, the Stampeders have reached the Grey Cup four out of five seasons.
Coming out of Eastern Washington University, Mitchell had a strong senior season throwing for 4,009 yards and 33 touchdowns earning the Walter Payton Award, the FCS version of the Heisman Trophy. Despite the elite production, the NFL passed on Mitchell as he went unselected in the 2012 draft. After that Mitchell quickly signed with the Stampeders based on advice from his trusted NCAA coach Beau Baldwin.
Bo knows how to make smart decisions that lead to success and winning on the field or with regards to his career. NFL teams would be smart to give Mitchell a legitimate shot.
