      If he’s available in the 6th or 7th round do you think the Bucs should draft him?

      Unlike La’el Collins last year(who we should have drafted in the 6th or 7th).  I think we should stay away from “drafting” Mixon. Whoever drafts him is going to be under major scrutiny. If anything, we try to snag him after the draft, but i’m not really excited about that either.

      No thanks I don’t want to touch him at all. People that did what he did should not be aloud in this league. Playing in the NFL is a privilege.

      His situation is no different than Tyreke Hills and he was drafted in the 5th round. If hes available I think we have the right enviroment here that he could be a model citizen.

      His situation is different because the incident was caught on film.

      Yeah and I wouldn’t have drafted Hill. Just my opinion on those situations. Hitting a woman or child means I don’t want you on my team.

      I wouldn’t mind bringing him in, but on a short leash.  He so much as spits on the sidewalk and he’s gone.

        I completely agree. What he did was horrible. Should NEVER lay hands on a woman but she wasn’t innocent herself. Women shouldn’t be hitting men either. I would be ok giving him a shot. I said it before I still believe ray lewis killed someone and he turned out ok.

      He is already given a second chance. He has the chance to graduate college and get a great job. Like I said, playing in the NFL is a privilege not a right.

        Hmm. I just wonder if you can “turn out ok” if you’re already a murderer. I don’t know if Ray is or not but you typed it yourself. LOL As for Mixon? No. Absolutely not. There are many better options with players with better character.

        Hahaha yeah i was just joking. I do think ray stab stab lewis at least turned his life around after. Silver ling;)

      He punched a chick back that punched him first(which is wrong on both parts)

       

      Tyreek choked his pregnant girlfriend. You mean to tell me just because one of them is on film its worse? Foh

      I’m not going to measure out which vile incident was worse than the other. It’s one thing to hear about it and quite another to see it. If a video of Tyreek choking out his pregnant girlfriend existed he would NEVER have gotten a shot in the NFL imo. He can sit in a room and frame his side of the story to a teams FO’s but there is not much he can frame when a video capturing the moment tells a lot more.

      His situation is also different because he didn’t strangle the pregnant mother of his child.

      A DUI and hitting a child or woman are different. I will pass on the coward that puts their hands on a female. There are plenty of prospects just as good with much better character.

      Wrong. Playing in the NFL is neither a privilege or a right. It’s a business. That’s why guys like Donte’ Stallworth, Josh Brent and Ray Lewis (who all KILLED people) got a second chance. Greg Hardy threw a woman on a pile of guns and threatened to kill her. Hell, Michael Pittman rammed his Hummer in to his wife’s car which occupied his wife, 2 year old and babysitter. And he was on the Bucs at the time. And continued to be for another 4 years.

      They held value because of talent. Talent leads to Wins. Wins lead to money.
      Fans are emotional and don’t like bad people. Football owners like wins and money.

      Last I checked, Ray Lewis didn’t kill anyone.  He just happened to be there when it happened.

      I posted this on the SR’s article, but there is a small difference IMO between Tyreek and Mixon, and it’s not that one was caught on film, it’s that one has never been taught a lesson and will continue to be an issue in the NFL, again, just my opinion.

      My post/comment:

      Just for the record and my Oklahoma State Pride :)…Tyreek Hill returned a kick against OU for us to help win the game in the last moments, he’s unbelievable and was our hero…for a week. Then he punched that pregnant girl and even without video was immediately cut by Gundy doing the right thing. He got his second chance at a lower division school before entering the NFL. OU on the other hand, didn’t suspend Mixon, they redshirted him and called it a suspension. Complete B.S. Then despite getting in further trouble with the law and school, he was allowed to play this year and now that the video came out Stoops said he should have kicked him off but it was too late to do anything. Ridiculous. He may be a talent like Tyreek is/was, but he’s never been taught a lesson and I predict will only have trouble follow him wherever he goes int he NFL. I obviously hate the sooners, but Perine does seem to be a good guy and hopefully has the talent for the next level if we select him.

      Anyway, article only mentioned what Tyreek did at OSU and I wanted to make clear my alma mater handled it the appropriate way.

      All the evidence points to someone else welding that knife in the Ray Lewis case.   It was Lewis’s “posse” that got into it with another group.  Someone from Lewis’s posse pulled the knife but it wasn’t Lewis.

      All of these points are erroneous… the real question is: do we think he will do it, or something else, again?

      Has he changed or is he the same? Simple question. The NFL is a “what have you done for me lately” league; both positive or negative.

      The female Joe hit was no outstanding citizen but what turns me off from Joe was he started the whole thing by picking on her gay friend and making gay slurs. No one should be picked on because there different weather that is skin color sexual preference or born with defects etc.

      Yes it is a business but it is also a privilege. Just because some people get second chances doesn’t mean they deserved those second chances. Tons of talent will get you a second chance in the NFL but the far less talented back up will not. Hello Ray Rice.

      Just because Mixon gave some apology doesn’t mean he deserves a chance in the NFL. He can get a second chance by graduating, getting a good job, and having a nice family. A lot of people don’t get that second chance.

      Not saying he shouldn’t get a second chance with someone else. All I’m saying is if I was the GM he wouldn’t be getting his second chance with my team.

      Hitting a woman/child is as about as low as it gets. I have a daughter of my own so what he did hits close to home for me.

      I hope you teach your daughter not to hit other people as well. I don’t give him a pass but watching the video you clearly see her push and hit him first. She even called him ovee to her before the confrontation. I respect your feelings as a father. I have a 4 year old autistic son and he already knows it’s not ok to hit people.
