Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JOE MIXON: Oklahoma, 6006 228 4.46. Junior entry from Oakley, CA. Started nine games in a rotation with Samaje Perine over two years. For his career he rushed for 2027 yards and tallied 17 touchdowns, caught 65 passes for 894 yards, averaging 13.9 yards per catch and scored nine times. Very muscular compact build with a powerful lower body. A highly efficient downhill zone runner from the spread formation. A patient runner who works through traffic. Explosive on inside zone running plays. Can avoid and shake tacklers in space and weave down the field. Runs the old Redskins’ counter sweep like it was made for him. Follows and cuts off the double pull concept on the goal-line. Can sit back behind the line while locating running lanes and burst through them. Can break a lot of tackles in a variety of ways. Very elusive for a big man. Has the power to fight through arm tackles and gain the tough yards. Has breakaway finish speed. Has NFL ball skills as a receiver. Not always consistent in traffic or as a blocker. Rarely maintains contact. Suspended for the 2014 season after he was arrested for hitting a female student. Whichever team drafts him will have to deal with an abundance of PR-related issues. On the field, Mixon can be called one of the top backs in this class. He has rare movement ability for a back his size and there is some natural vision and reaction ability here that you won’t see very often. He is an every down back who has some questions to answer, but as a player, he can be big time. Pro day numbers: 9-10/BJ, 4.25/SS, 7.08/3 cone. 2016 stats: 1274 yds, 6.8 ypc, 10 TD, 37 rec, 538 yds, 14.5 ypr, 5 TD. Not invited to Combine due to domestic violence incident. Second/third round. (A- 30 1/8, H-10 1/4, BP-21, VJ-35).
