    Pretty much.

    Second best RB in the draft, lowest mileage to boot. Complete back.

    Mixon impressed at his Pro Day. Wonder if DEN had any scouts there?

    He fumbles a lot. Questionable judgment. I'd take in 4th, because he's otherwise amazing.

    I'm on is going in the 2nd round, high to mid 3rd at the latest.

    I think it's too high, but there is a reasonable chance he plays like a 1st rounder for years to come.

    If he has his head on straight and has cleaned up his act, he's worth a 2d, if you knew that. I don't like his fumble rate combined with the judgment issue, but if he's found religion then I'm in.

    Denver would be better off taking McCaffery in the first if Nixon is expected to go in the second. I can get on board with the later rounds but a 2nd im not sure about.

    That is where I am. There's some % that Mixon is the best RB this draft. But I like McCaffrey's % better.

    My guess is Mixon doesn't get past the 3rd round.

    If Mixon lasts into the fourth round, I would take the chance, just as Shanahan did with Maurice Clarett. If the dude turns into a bust, you didn't have that much invested. No way I would take him the first two days but he represents exceptional third-day value.
    I miss the old Mile High Stadium.

    Mixon is a stud and he's really grown from his mistake. In fact, it was him and his representation that released the video because he wanted to be up front about it before draft season. Since then, he's been nothing but a stand up guy. Quite simply could be something stupid he did one time and wont ever happen again.

    If his character reports over the last few years are true...he wont make it to the third round

    If Broncos burn a 2 on him, so be it.
