I doubt the Packers would take Joe Mixon in round one, but both Cris Collinsworth and Mike Mayock have the Packers taking him. The guy is a stud as a football player .. probably about the perfect back for the Packers, but I can't see them pulling the trigger in round one. Round two perhaps? I probably would take him there. If he slipped to us in round three I'd sprint up to the podium.
Im probably in the minority here but I'd be happy if we took him anywhere, even the first. He'd add another dimension to this offense that is already loaded, and I'm not sold in Montgomery as a running back either.

I think Perine is the perfect RB for us. Dude runs hard as a mother Fer and that's the only appropriate way to describe it. He keeps his head on a swivel when he's pass blocking and gets low to hit rushers off balance. He also did some lead blocking. Also, guess who was his lead blocker in 2014? Ripkowski. I think with him and Montgomery in the backfield our offense could be really dangerous. Throw in Bennett and Kendricks? I would seriously consider him at #61.


Love him too. Seems like an awesome kid as well.

You may not be sold on Monty, but from all accounts, GB is....
No doubt that Mixon is a very talented runner, but he's a huge NO from me. He's just a terrible person. It is true that they can't all be choir boys, but I don't see the city of GB supporting a kid like Mixon.
And now there are rumors that his videotaped incident wasn't his first....
Regardless of talent and need, I'd run far away from that kid.

Well, the Packers have had him in for a visit .. if they like the kid I guess I wouldn't rule out the Packers taking him at #29. Talent wise he's worth the pick for sure. It seems like it's safe to say that Mixon won't be selected in round one if the Packers pass. Maybe we look to deal back a bit, pick up some extra picks, and see what happens in round two. I do doubt he will make it past a team like the Bengals or Raiders in round two, but who knows?

It'll give something for NFL Teams to research in the days leading up to the draft. It will also be in the back of each NFL GM's mind that might draft him early.

I'm sure they're aware of it. The actual original portion of this that's being pushed as new news had already been out since February minimum. And they were likely aware of it long before that if it's indeed a real thing that took place.

I'll trust the Packers to make the right call on this guy ... I'm fine with him or without him.

If I may be conspiratorial for a moment, it wouldn't surprise me if someone in Mixon's camp realized that Joe would not be going as high in the draft as was hoped and decided to drop a line to the media about this allegation. There's no real meat to it when you dig, but it does provide a convenient narrative explanation for why Mixon is still available later than we thought he would be last week.

The real sticking point that's going to lead to Mixon falling is that most GMs would need approval from their owner to make that pick, and NFL owners being PR-conscious businesspeople would likely be loath to give that permsision.
