Summary

Mixon's rookie year was a mixed bag. He started the year behind Jeremy Hill despite being the more talented player. Eventually, Mixon earned the role, but a poor offensive line led to some inconsistency. At times, his talent rose to the surface and provided exciting moments, but he ended the season with only one 100-yard rushing game. A couple of late-season injuries also contributed to low overall stats (626 yards, 3.5 yards per carry). His receiving numbers (30 catches on 34 targets, with a 9.6-yard average) were a bright spot, though. The team made multiple moves to address the weaknesses along the line, including drafting Ohio State center Billy Price in the first round and trading for former Buffalo tackle Cordy Glenn. With Hill out of the picture, no other backs with an early-downs skill set, and an improved line clearing the way, Mixon should be a productive workhorse this season - though Giovani Bernard will still have his fair share of third-down work.
