Bold (?) Predictions

Postby Naismith » Fri Apr 07, 2017 12:05 pm

Not sure exactly how bold these are, but figured it would be fun to have these written down for prosperity.

1. Garett Bolles will be the first offensive lineman taken and will be a top twelve pick.
2. Patrick Mahomes goes in the top half of the first round.
3. Dalvin Cook will be available on day two.
4. Joe Mixon will be available on day three.
5. Marcus Maye sneaks into the first round or goes very early in the second round.
6. Someone trades up for Mitchell Trubisky inside the top ten.
7. Curtis Samuel goes in the first round.
8. Jarrad Davis goes in the first round.
9. Eight DBs go in the first round.
10. John Ross falls to round two.

Less bold predictions, I think Lattimore (outside top ten) goes later than people expect due to injury histories and that Jonathan Allen still goes top five despite rumors of his fall. Three TEs are gone on day one.

Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon is the most polarizing player in this year’s draft, a first-round talent who punched a woman while he was in college, an ugly incident that was caught on tape. But that may not be the only allegation of violence against a female that has teams concerned about Mixon.

Longtime personnel evaluator Gil Brandt, who kept Mixon off his list of the Top 150 prospects in this year’s draft, said today on PFT Live that a high school incident is of concern as well.

“I just wouldn’t draft him,” Brandt said of Mixon. “His problems started back in high school.”

Although the incident has been largely overlooked, a man named Anthony Hernandez alleged that Mixon punched his daughter in high school.

“I know for a fact he threw my daughter to the ground and hit her. I went to the school and . . . they hid him in the office. He got no punishment. The police even came. I was escorted off the campus as if I did something wrong. These are simply the facts, he’s a woman beater,” Hernandez said in a letter read by the lawyer for Amelia Molitor, the victim in Mixon’s highly publicized incident at Oklahoma.

Mixon has denied hitting any other women and was not charged in connection with the alleged incident in high school.

Tbh, that story looks kind of fake. Seems like it would've come up sooner then a week before the draft if he was a multiple offender(and nobody would've been talking about him as he'd already been written off).

Also, they hid him in the office and then used a police escort when the victims father came? That's either a gross overdramatization or the HS cover up story of the decade.

If a student's father went to the school seeking physical retribution against another student, I would also hide the alleged offender in the office surrounded by adult and witnesses, and then call the police.

I am no defender of Mixon but that situation smells funny.

Apparently it did. This is just the first time I've seen it.

Matt Miller: My colleague @JasonColeBR reported this like a month ago about Mixon. We've known it's being investigated

Ian Rapoport: I’ve spoken to two teams that are currently looking into this specific incident.

No. There is a gap in the story, as noted by the "...". We don't know what was in the gap, or why it was omitted.

But it doesn't add up, so I connected a few dots.

Imagine a parent arriving at the school office and was reasonable. Perhaps he says something like "my daughter said that this guy hit her, I believe her, she came home with bruises, can you investigate please?" They promise to look into it, they saw the bruises too, thank you much miss, thank you sir I'm sorry this happened to your daughter, et cetera.

If it were a reasonable exchange that happened, then why would the administrative staff feel the need to hide the alleged perpetrator in the office and call the cops to escort the parent off the property? That part doesn't make sense.

Either the dad was acting inappropriately with staff, or he was threatening the boy, or both. Why would they feel the need to hide Mixon unless he was actively being threatened? If the dad was being a **** to the office staff, then they wouldn't feel the need to protect Mixon from an angry father. And why would anyone call the cops to escort someone out of a place unless that person was dangerous or threatening to become so?

I'm just guessing here. But the whole situation sure seems off.

As the draft approaches, one of the most controversial prospect has a second past incident bubbling to the surface. However, the man who alleged that his daughter was struck by Joe Mixon in high school has since reversed course.

In a report read by the lawyer for the woman struck by Mixon in 2014 during her interview with police, Anthony Hernandez said, “I know for a fact he threw my daughter to the ground and hit her.” Hernandez, who made the claim originally on Facebook, thereafter recanted his claims with another Facebook post.

On March 30, 2017, Hernandez forwarded the text of the clarification to Mixon’s lawyer, Blake Johnson of Crowe & Dunlevy. On Wednesday morning, Blake Johnson forwarded the clarification to PFT.

“I have recently learned that a comment I made about Joe Mixon on social media a few years ago is now receiving a lot of attention. I want to explain that comment and clarify that I do not believe Joe ever did anything to hurt my daughter,” Hernandez wrote.

“My daughter went to Freedom High School with Joe, and they have been friends for much of their lives. Once, when they were in school together, my daughter had a minor disagreement with some of her classmates that got blown out of proportion. Like any father would, I reacted emotionally. Unfortunately, I did so before I had all the facts. Now, having talked to my daughter and investigated the whole story, I realize that I was mistaken about Joe’s involvement. I definitely overreacted, and I regret that my words might have given some people the wrong impression about Joe. I know that Joe did not hurt my daughter, did not intend to, and would not do so.

“Joe and my daughter are still good friends. Joe is a great kid with a bright future in front of him, and he is welcome in my home anytime.

“My family and I value our privacy. I hope that my statement puts this matter to rest. We will not respond to further media inquiries about this.”

Blake Johnson also told PFT that he “spoke to multiple administrative officials at Freedom High School who assured me that no such incident ever took place there,” and that Mixon’s disciplinary record from high school reveals no such incident.

“Norman Police also ran Joe’s juvenile record with law enforcement in California and they had no record of any such report or incident (or any other criminal incident on part of Joe),” Johnson said via email. “I’m fairly confident that the incident described in Mr. Hernandez’s original [Facebook] post did not happen.”

I actually really like and even agree with a few on these.

Naismith wrote:Not sure exactly how bold these are, but figured it would be fun to have these written down for prosperity.

1. Garett Bolles will be the first offensive lineman taken and will be a top twelve pick.
2. Patrick Mahomes goes in the top half of the first round.


5. Marcus Maye sneaks into the first round or goes very early in the second round.
6. Someone trades up for Mitchell Trubisky inside the top ten.
7. Curtis Samuel goes in the first round.
8. Jarrad Davis goes in the first round.
9. Eight DBs go in the first round.
10. John Ross falls to round two.

Less bold predictions, I think Lattimore (outside top ten) goes later than people expect due to injury histories and that Jonathan Allen still goes top five despite rumors of his fall. Three TEs are gone on day one.


I don't know is Davis going in the first is that bold. He's a stud and IMO will be the best LB of this class.

I agree. I've heard people list him as a top 15 player.
