NFL Draft 2017

Joe Mixon, a talent with some serious questions over his character

The running back from Oklahoma has the ability to be a massive star but his personal problems leave a nasty taste in the mouth.

Joe Mixon, a talent with some serious questions over his character


Joe Mixon is a unique runner. His ability to slip between the tackles and break, ten yards up the field, is devastating. His speed in the open field is also terrifying. He can come out of the backfield as a reciever too. He has it all!

There are two issues with Mixon. He struck a female in a bar during college and sat out an entire season for that. Videos have emerged of the brutal incident and they are not pretty. 

Since then he has said all the right things about repentance, forgiveness, restraint, learning from mistakes and second chances. The NFL, however, is trying to clean up its image and NFL teams are no longer interested in courting player with domestic violence charges against them. Especially fter the video of Ray Rice knocking his fiancee out and dragging her from a lift emerged.

Joe Mixon quote: “I made a bad decision. Ever since that night I have to live with it. I’ve got to re-live it every day. You can never forget something like that. It still haunts me to this day, but it’s what you do from that point on. You can’t take it back. I can replay it in my head a thousand times, and if I could take it back I would, but I can’t.”
