12/31/16: Mixon is an electric runner with excellent speed and the ability to rip off a long run on any carry. He became Oklahoma’s featured runner as a redshirt sophomore with an average of seven yards per carry (168 carries) for 1,183 yards with eight touchdowns while sharing carries with Samaje Perine. Mixon also was a receiving weapon with 32 receptions for 449 yards with five touchdowns.
As a freshman in 2015, Mixon averaged 6.7 yards per carry for 753 yards with seven touchdowns. He had 28 receptions for 356 yards with four scores as well.
Sources have said that they think Mixon is a serious talent with three-down starting potential in the NFL.
Some teams, however, already have ruled him out because of the incident from 2014 in which he punched a woman. After video of the incident was released two years later, Mixon issued a tearful apology. Some teams will remove him from their draft boards because of the character concerns.
