Multiple NFL draft boards out there has Joe Mixon going undrafted in 2017
There are a bunch of NFL owners who don’t want to touch a Joe Mixon with a ten-foot pole but money and talent will eventually win the day
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported Tuesday multiple sources have told him the playmaker could fall out of the first three rounds. Furthermore, one source expressed the possibility Mixon “won’t be drafted at all.”
The PFT report comes in stark contrast to a growing narrative over the past month that the OU rusher was starting to climb draft boards ahead of the April 27 event.
This makes me really think if the NFL actually is starting to do the right thing after all these years of letting criminals slide when they do crazy things. Now the problem is that is still is going to get drafted. I would be super surprised if the NFL owners actually took a stand against Joe Mixon and if he doesn’t go drafted what kind of free agent market will Mixon command. There are going to be pro teams lining up to sign this guy.
There just is no mistaking that Joe Mixon is most likely the second or third best running back in this draft. What do you do as an NFL team in desperate need of an offensive playmaker? You can’t just let this guy get picked up by another team. Yeah, he had a terrible video out there. Terrible video! but that’s in real life not in NFL life. This guy has the talent to make somebody else a lot of money so there is no way he gets passed up.
NFL owners taking a stand against money just isn’t going to happen.
