Interesting. That is the first I have heard that. Where there is smoke there is fire. I think Licht is more willing to take chances on these character concern guys than other GMs, which I love. Football is a violent game and some of the best players were insane.
that is all not to say Mixon is crazy or unstable.
I seriously doubt we'd send GMaC to talk to Perine.
Mixon is an interesting cat. Easily a first round talent. The local sports hacks had Landry (the draft guy...can't remember his first name) who stated that he felt Mixon was the best RB in this draft (from a pure football perspective). I only saw one Oklahoma game this year and Perine was the guy who went off (I think Mixon was banged up during the game).
The question would be do we draft him in the 2nd or hope he makes it to the third? The kid is gonna get drafted and play in the NFL. His "punching the broad in the face" thing is gonna cost him the first round (MONEY) but my bet is we take him in the 2nd, if he makes it to us.
Mixon the best back in the draft?
