    Will Joe Mixon Be Drafted?

    Heard on the radio that Joe Mixon has informed Oklahoma that we had declared for the NFL Draft. Sounds like he was graded as having First Round talent. Some are speculating that he will not be drafted by an NFL team because of his domestic abuse situation.

    Do you think he will be drafted?

    I have a hard time believing that if he is still sitting there in the 5-7th rounds, that a team isn't going to grab him and help to "provide him with a 2nd chance".

    He won't be drafted as early as his teammate, Perine, but he will for sure be drafted.

    He'll absolutely get drafted but the fact that he's scum is going to cost him millions.

    Tyreke Hill was drafted. Like was stated on Mike and Mike this morning, if video of domestic violence with an 8mo pregnant chick existed, how would we view him and Andy Reid's decision to draft him? No outcry for that guy because of the media access to the video. Hill admitted, by the way, that he was guilty and got 3 yrs probation.

    He'll be drafted. Hopefully not by Bengals. My guess round 3 or 4.

    He's very talented on field. Oklahoma didn't get cranked up in Sugar Bowl until he replaced Perine (who is 2nd all time in rush yards at OU)

    Perrine is actually 1st all time now at OU.

    100% will be drafted. I will say no later than the 5th round.

    Yep. Amazing how seeing a video gets everyone worked up. Like knowing Mixon punched her and broke her face in 4 places isn't enough.

    I hope she takes him for everything including potential NFL earnings.

    Joe Mixon to be deposed on camera in civil suit from 214 attack - NY Daily News

    Joe Mixon hopes to move on to the NFL, but he can’t leave the past behind — not yet, anyway.

    The Oklahoma star running back, who announced Thursday he’ll enter the NFL draft, is set to be deposed on camera in a civil suit on Jan. 24, after punching a female student in the face in 2014, TMZSports.com reported.

    Amelia Molitor suffered a broken jaw and cheekbone and is now suing Mixon for intentional infliction of emotional distress.

    A video of the incident was released by Mixon’s lawyers last month. The surveillance footage from inside Pickleman’s Gourmet Cafe in Norman, Okla. shows the two exchanging words before Molitor shoves the student-athlete. Mixon retaliates by lunging toward Molitor, who slaps him. Then Mixon delivers the punch to Molitor.

    Mixon, who was suspended from the football team for the 2014 season, was charged with a misdemeanor, placed on probation for a year, ordered to serve 100 hours community service and undergo counseling.

    Mixon has since apologized multiple times, and in a statement on Thurday said he promises “not to waste the second chance” given to him.

    “I owe that to my coaches who believed in me, my teammates who stood by me, and the University that gave me an education that I always will be thankful for,” he said.

    Mixon set Oklahoma’s single-season record for all-purpose yards with 2,331. He also scored two rushing touchdowns in a 35-19 Sugar Bowl victory over Auburn.

    Despite his talent, the running back could drop in the NFL draft because of the assault; Mixon told ESPN that he’s going to be honest with teams.

    "I'm going to tell them the complete truth," Mixon said in a phone interview. "That it's never okay to be in the situation I was in or to ever hit a woman. I'm looking for them to get to know the actual me."

    There’s still a chance that Mixon could settle with Molitor before the scheduled deposition.

    I did not know of Hill's issues until I heard this on Mike and Mike today. What he did is actually worse than Mixon IMO, if that is possible. He hit her in the face AND in the stomach when she was 8 mo pregnant. Just despicable. I guess it is human nature to not get as worked up unless we can actually see it on video. I wonder what we would be saying about Zeke Elliott is there was video of his altercation with a woman.

    Zekes situation is different. That girl he was with was only in it for the money and found what she thought was an easy way to get some.

    Did he hit her, though?

    Not from anything I've seen. Everything I've seen is they were in an argument because he was leaving her and she got mad about it and decided to take matters into her own hands. Zeke apparently had text messages from her proving his side of the story. Considering we haven't heard anything else about it, I would say my opinion is pretty accurate.
