Joe Mixon is most complete RB prospect in this draft

For this piece I’m focusing on the evaluation of Mixon only as a player, based on film study. And on film, he’s one of the most complete NFL prospects among running backs in the draft. Based solely on film, Mixon is a better overall prospect than Florida State’s Dalvin Cook, who is projected by almost everyone to go in the first round.

Packer's News Page Covers FSU Corner Marquez White

This year’s talent-rich cornerback class could see as many as a half-dozen from this group of prospects selected in the first round, which certainly bodes well for the Packers, but also diverts the spotlight away from the next tier of cover men that could dramatically alter their standing on draft boards with a strong performance at the scouting combine. Among these back-end defenders is Florida State’s Marquez White, who first came to Tallahassee with the kind of hoop dreams that many undersized basketball players harbor at the collegiate level only to eventually come to grips with the fact that they may be best suited to take on another sport or tackle a profession outside of athletics alt

220lb Safety Rayshawn Jenkins may fit Hybrid Safety/Linebacker role for NFL Teams

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Get to know Hurricanes free safety Rayshawn Jenkins in this NFL Draft capsule. Name: Rayshawn Jenkins Position: Free safety School: Miami Height/weight: 6-1, 220 Year: Redshirt senior Pros: "So much has been made of the Cleveland Browns adding a hybrid safety that can also operate as a linebacker. The Los Angeles Rams did it with Mark Barron and while it appears that Jamie Collins will take over that role, the Browns still may want to add a player in that mold that can play on special teams and be a package player. "Rayshawn Jenkins actually measured in heavier at the Senior Bowl than his listed weight and looks the part already. He appears more than capable to play at the

CJ Anderson and Marshawn Lynch Lend a Hand at Joe Mixon's Youth Camp

Joe Mixon wanted to do a youth football camp in his hometown of Oakley CA and a couple of pretty good NFL'ers decided to join him. Mixon's Life Football Camp is about more than just football, his goal was to give back to the community that molded him into a high school All American and launched him on the path to becoming a potential first round pick in the NFL Draft. CJ Anderson and Marshawn Lynch both believe in Mixon's mission and were easily convinced to join the elite staff. That mission is to create a camp that help kids learn the lessons Mixon has learned through the course of his young career. It is about LEARNING, IMPROVING, FAMILY and EXPERIENCE… It’s about L.I.F.E.! It looks lik

Mixon's Stock Keeps Rising

NORMAN — Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon's draft stock is beginning to rise, perhaps all the way to the first round. After not being invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, Mixon shined at OU's pro day in front of coaches and scouts from various NFL teams, including Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer. Mixon also had meetings with teams to discuss the July 25, 2014, assault incident for which he eventually entered an Alford plea. After his pro day workout, Mixon said he'd heard some teams had taken him off their board, but was determined to show the NFL that he's worth a pick. Mixon also said that when he made his decision to forgo his final two years of eligibility at OU, he had been told by “ Maurice Jones-Drew Ranks Mixon as #1 Running back in Draft

Day 1 starters on any team 1) Joe Mixon, Oklahoma: Some may be surprised that the Oklahoma product is at No. 1, considering his controversial past. The off-the-field incident -- which ultimately kept him from being invited to the NFL Scouting Combine -- is a very serious issue that teams will have to examine extensively before the draft. What I know about Mixon on the football field is that he's without a doubt the best running back in this year's class. He's versatile, a good route runner, accelerates through contact and has great patience. I recently spoke to a coach who attended Oklahoma's pro day, and he told me Mixon was the best player he had seen in the last 10 years at any pro day. T

Kenny Walker, UCLA WR, clocks 4.29 40 in Pro Day

UCLA Wide Receiver Kenny Walker posted a 4.29 in the 40 at his UCLA pro day. Had he been invited to the NFL combine this time would have placed him second at the WR position and third overall among NFL hopefuls. That's right, Kenny Walker is one of the three fastest men hoping to be drafted in the last weekend in April. "WR Kenny Walker measured in at 5’9 188 lbs. and ran a blazing 4.26 unofficial 40-yard dash. Although not a huge receiver he also put up 19 reps of 225 lbs. Walker’s speed was no secret to UCLA fans or those in the program but he had struggled with drops during his college career. Walker helped quell some of those concerns by making every catch to round out an impressive w


Joe Mixon's Rehab Effort Is Working In a recent meeting with an NFL franchise, Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon was asked a simple question: Why did you do it? Mixon's answer, a team official told Bleacher Report, was contemplative and thoughtful. And while the official wouldn't tell B/R exactly what Mixon said, he felt Mixon's answer was sincere. Mixon's willingness in recent weeks to address the character issues that have swirled around him after he was caught on video punching a woman in the face has transformed his image, according to that team official. Not just within that team, but around much of the league. Indeed, people around the NFL now tell me Mixon is moving up draft boards. It'

Lorenzo Alexander signs $9 Million Deal With Buffalo

Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander, who had a breakout season with the Buffalo Bills in 2016 at the age of 33, was rewarded by the team with a two-year, $9-million contract that he signed on Saturday. $4.1 million of the deal is guaranteed and that the new contract comes after he made $885,000 last season. The 10-year-veteran, who was expected to be a backup but won the job in training camp, led the Bills with 12.5 sacks last season after recording a total of nine sacks in his first nine NFL seasons. He was selected for the ProBowl where he won MVP honors.

Akeem Spence to Detroit Lions: Lions fit my style of Defense

Never underestimate the recruiting power between players in free agency. Detroit set out to begin the process of filling out the depth chart along its defensive line at the start of free agency, and got some help in recruiting former Bucs defensive tackle Akeem Spence from current Lions safety and former teammate of Spence’s in college at Illinois, Tavon Wilson. “From talking to former teammates I’ve played with, like Tavon Wilson, he recommended (Detroit) as a high reference point,” Spence said in a conference call Friday. “We’re college teammates. I had his number the whole time he’s been in the NFL and he’s had my number and we text back and forth all the time. That’s like a brother to me

Pro Bowl safety Mike Adams: Panthers aren’t giving me job, I’m here to earn it

Veteran safety Kurt Coleman is getting a little more experience in his secondary. Just don’t ask the new guy how old he is. On Friday, the Panthers announced the signing of Pro Bowl safety Mike Adams, who will turn 36 on March 24, to a two-year deal. But seriously, don’t ask him about his birthday. “Slow down,” he said. “No, no, no. You guys pay attention to that,” said Adams, when meeting with media for the first time at Bank of America Stadium. “So what I have to say to that is, ‘Stop looking at my bio and watch the film.’ That’s what I have to say to everybody. My body of work speaks for itself. If you see my film and watch my film, now look at my bio, you won’t know how old I am.” Adams

Joe Mixon says that he's "not looking for easy"

Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon said Wednesday that he's "not looking for easy" as he embarks on his professional career, calling questions about his character "another obstacle I have to go through." In an interview with ESPN's Dan Graziano, Mixon said he thinks about the July 2014 night when he hit fellow student Amelia Molitor in the face in a local restaurant, knocking her to the ground and breaking bones in her face. Mixon entered a plea on a misdemeanor assault charge and was suspended for the 2014 season after receiving a deferred one-year sentence and community service. He ran for 1,704 yards and 23 touchdowns last season for the Sooners and then declared for the NFL draft. "I think

Lorenzo Alexander out to prove he's not a 'one-hit wonder'

INDIANAPOLIS -- After a decade's worth of doing the dirty work as one of the NFL's habitually unheralded utility men, Lorenzo Alexander got the football world's attention in 2016, making a stunning run at the NFL sack title. So when the Buffalo Bills' veteran pass rusher and special teams standout got singled out by then-offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn at a team meeting the night before a mid-November game at Cincinnati, he expected to soak up some hard-earned glory. "Rex (Ryan) asked some of his coaches to get up and talk, and A-Lynn was one of them," Alexander laughingly recalled last Wednesday at the Westin in downtown Indianapolis, where, in his role as an NFL Players Association exec

Joe Thomas has NFL Combine memories, and they're not fond

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Joe Thomas isn't a big fan of the NFL Combine. But is that really surprising for a guy who skipped the 2007 NFL Draft to go fishing? The Browns left tackle took to Twitter on Monday to share some thoughts about the combine, which begins its 2017 edition Tuesday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Thomas also reminisced about his favorite questions during the team interview portion of the combine. By the way, if you don't follow Thomas on Twitter (@joethomas73), you really should. He's been at it less than a year and he's already at Pro Bowl level. Thomas was asked to explain the weirdest question he got at the combine. Browns offensive lineman Gabe Ikard Tweeted that he w
