Summary

Mixon's off-the-field issues are well-publicized. To draft him in the second round with the potential P.R. nightmare it brings would seem to be an indicator that the team plans to integrate him right away. After all, why bring on the ridicule and headache if the player isn't going to contribute? On the field, Mixon isn't the bruiser that Jeremy Hill is or the dynamic, agile pass-catcher that Giovani Bernard is, but he provides the best all-around skill set on the team. With Hill and Bernard, defenses can more confidently guess what Cincinnati is going to do. But a player like Mixon brings an every-down skill set and allows the offense to play in many formations without substituting running backs. He could overtake Hill as the early-downs player and perhaps play all three downs if his pass blocking is acceptable, but Hill will likely be used at the goal line. (May 13)
