Overview:

Mixon was very productive at Oklahoma, while only playing in 25 games, where he has 301 carries, for 2027 rushing yards, and 17 rushing touchdowns. He has good size, he also has good speed, along with good vision, and he is a good pass catching back. He is also a dynamic play maker, he is hard to take down, he breaks tackles with ease, and he is a good pass blocking back. He does tend to get stuffed at times, and has had off the field issues, which have caused teams to push him down their boards. While Mixon has great production, and the skill set, his off the field issues I view Mixon as a day 3 pick, but I expect him to go on day 2, because of the production, skill set, and potential he possesses.
