Joe Mixon Highly Ranked NFL Prospect
Pro Football Focus Ranks Mixon at #24 for NFL Draft:
24. Joe Mixon, RB, Oklahoma
Mixon is a new entry on this list, but his play this season could not be ignored. Mixon is a complete all-around running back, and one of the best in the country. Every time he touches the ball he’s a threat to turn it into a huge play, as evidenced by his 54.5 breakaway percentage. His 2.60 yards per route run ranks second among all Power-5 running backs, as does his overall grade of 87.1. He’s got off the field issues, but going on just pure talent Mixon certainly deserves to be ranked this high.
