Dallas Cowboys (first stint)
The Dallas Cowboys selected Mitchell in the seventh round (254th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft. Mitchell was the 33rd and final cornerback drafted. His fall in the draft was speculated to be due to his performance at the NFL Combine, as teams deemed him too slow to play cornerback.
As a rookie, he was ineligible to participate in organized team activities until the University of Oregon classes ended. Throughout training camp, Mitchell competed for a roster spot as a backup cornerback against Sterling Moore, B. W. Webb, Tyler Patmon, and Dashaun Phillips. On August 30, 2014, the Dallas Cowboys waived Mitchell.
On September 1, 2014, the Chicago Bears signed Mitchell to their practice squad. On October 13, 2014, the Chicago Bears elevated Mitchell to their active roster, but remained inactive as a healthy scratch for the last ten games of the regular season.
Throughout training camp in 2015, Mitchell competed for a roster spot as a backup cornerback against Alan Ball, Demontre Hurst, Al Louis-Jean, Sherrick McManis, Jacoby Glenn, Qumain Black, and Bryce Callahan. Head coach John Fox named Mitchell the fourth cornerback on the depth chart to begin the regular season, behind Kyle Fuller, Alan Ball, and Sherrick McManis.
In 2015, a notable preseason allowed him to make the roster by beating out Tim Jennings. He was sidelined after Week 5 with a hamstring injury. On November 17, he was released to make room for cornerback Jacoby Glenn. On November 19, he was signed to the Bears' practice squad. He was released on November 23.
Dallas Cowboys (second stint)
On December 2, 2015, he was signed by the Dallas Cowboys to the practice squad. With cornerback Orlando Scandrick out with a season ending knee injury and Tyler Patmon struggling, Mitchell was promoted to the active roster on December 18 and was named the team's nickel cornerback. In his first game against the New York Jets he registered a pass defensed and an interception, becoming one of two cornerbacks on the team to have an interception on the year. Against the Washington Redskins he sacked quarterback Colt McCoy, forcing a fumble. In three games, he registered 12 tackles, one sack, one interception and 2 passes defensed.
Kansas City Chiefs
On September 6, 2016, Mitchell was signed to the Kansas City Chiefs' practice squad. He was promoted to the active roster on October 18, 2016. He was released on November 8, 2016 and signed to the practice squad the next day. He was promoted back to the active roster on November 25, to be the third cornerback.
In 2017, he began the season as a starter at right cornerback for seven games in place of an injured Steven Nelson. In Week 3, he recorded two interceptions and nine tackles in a 24–10 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. His performance against the Chargers was the first multi-interception game of his professional career. On October 30, Nelson was activated to play against the Denver Broncos and Mitchell returned to a backup role behind Kenneth Acker. He finished with 9 starts out of 15 appearances and 4 interceptions.
On March 15, 2018, Mitchell signed a three-year, $12 million contract with the Cleveland Browns, reuniting with John Dorsey who was the general manager with the Chiefs. Mitchell started the first four games of the 2018 season before suffering a broken forearm in Week 4. He was placed on injured reserve on October 2, 2018. He was activated off injured reserve on December 8, 2018.
