The Fluctuating Draft Stock Of Joe Mixon

The Fluctuating Draft Stock Of Joe Mixon

Former Oklahoma Sooners standout Joe Mixon was back in the news after allegations surfaced about him beating a girl in high school. Although these allegations were retracted and said it was a misunderstanding, the association of Mixon and violence is still present.

With the NFL draft looming, many teams are worried about the PR hit that would come with drafting the ever-talented running back. This fear has directly affected his draft stock with some experts saying Mixon could go anywhere from the second or third round to not being drafted at all.
