Among the questions during Thursday’s edition of “Blue 42” was one that many NFL teams have surely discussed leading up to next week’s draft: Should former Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon be taken with an early pick?
If it were only a matter of talent, he would be. But Mixon’s situation is complicated by his off-the-field history, which includes a video showing him punching a woman in the face – reportedly breaking her jaw and cheekbone – after she shoved him during a 2014 altercation.
Brock Huard and Mike Salk discussed how Mixon’s ugly incident should impact his draft position in the eyes of a running-back-needy team that might consider him.
They also discussed another draft question: Is there a quarterback prospect this year who could significantly impact the NFC West if one of the other teams in the division takes him?
