ATHENS, Ga. -- Malcolm Mitchell knows the time will come when Todd Grantham lets him have it about a missed assignment.

For now, Georgia's defensive coordinator is taking it easy on Mitchell, who Wednesday completed only his second practice at cornerback after earning SEC All-Freshman honors last year at wide receiver.

"I think Coach Grantham's being pretty nice right now, knowing I don't know anything," said Mitchell, who was second on the team last season with 45 catches and 665 yards. "I'm pretty sure there is one time he wanted to get on me, but I don't really know [the defense]."
