    Going pro... Guy is a freaking stud talent. Probably the 2nd most talented running back in a loaded running back draft class this year. I believe Cook from FSU is more talented.



    An off field incident from 2 years ago will probably make him fall to the 2nd or 3rd round. I doubt Dallas gets him and with Elliott I see no reason to get him. He's basically an Elliott type player but a better receiver.

    It will be interesting...ray rice never got another shot and the Mixon video is arguably worse. Obviously Mixon is much younger and more talented at this stage, but it's still a PR nightmare to draft him.

    I'll add that Ray Rice was on the downside of his career and cost millions at the time. Mixon will be cheaper especially the further he falls in the draft.

    No team will draft him and he will only serve as training camp fodder. Book it.

    Very possible. I haven't seen anything from him that warrants a high draft pick. I'm thinking someone will use a 5th or later round pick on him, but with his "history" he may end up as an UDFA.

    Yeah it wouldn't shock me if someone took him in the 6th/7th...but OP said 2nd/3rd. No way I see him going that high

    Mixon was struck twice by the girl

    He hit her back like a man but I don't see it as worse than Rice

    ps- I don't think he is in Elliott's class

    I'm really surprised he was given a 1st round grade.

    Does he hit the hole as fast as that girl?

    He'll get drafted... probably mid rounds. As an OU alum I want nothing to do with him. Sometimes on-field success isn't worth it.

    I would draft him in the 6th round. Talent wise he is only behind Fournette and Cook. I think the Redskins or Eagles would draft him.

    Toxic, wouldn't touch him even if desperate for a back.

    Lets someone else deal with the PR.

    The local and National media will never let it go if he is a Cowboy

    I've never seen a group of people grandstand on a issue like they did with Greg Hardy and it would happen all over again if Mixon were in Dallas.

    Let him go to Detroit or Green Bay where the media won't care as much.
