I would have preferred Mixon for the Vikings - at the original position and keeping the picks.

Cooks is slightly better overall, but Mixon is better between the tackles.

I'm not happy about the trade up for Cook - but he's going to be a fine player.

Laughing no


I don't agree with LIG often but he's right. Mixon's biggest weakness (on the field) appears to be breaking tackles. If our OLine doesn't improve from last season, this could be the biggest limiting factor in Mixon living up to his on the field potential...

For me it matters whether someone had a one time mistake or is a habitual offender.

As far as I know Mixon hasn't done anything bad since the incident. Aside from ESPN seeing viewers and thus beating the dead horse from their high horses, i would prefer a player who made one mistake over a guy who runs with a bad crowd, and has a history of incidents.

There was a second incident where he tore up a parking ticket and tried to pull a "don't you know who I am" with the person writing it, but the next time someone's first reaction to a parking ticket is "I deserved that" that will be the first time that has ever happened.

Most teams have these analysts who constantly blast these kids to lower their value and then they draft them. Happens all the time yet most just ignore it.

Garett Bolles was suspended 5 times, involved in drugs, and arrested for vandalism yet no one mentions it. He was drafted in the 1st round! Can you smell the hypocrisy? Garett Bolles was a thug.

Mixon punched a woman after she called him a racial slur. Should he have hit her? Nah. A better man would walk away but we're talking about a teenager at the time. It was caught on tape so NOW people still want to bash him AFTER he missed a season of football? GTFOH! I'm quite sure there are more things that we don't know about but why worry about what I don't know or can't control.

Riley Cooper used a racail slur and was caught on tape. He went unpunished by the NFL and was rewarded with a contract soon after Shocked I'm using facts. I could care less how your personal views on life are.

Dalvin Cook is a thug. I'm not even going there with him.

Bolles didn't knock a little lady out. Owns his mistakes acknowledges what his issues were and has moved past it. Mixon tore up a ticket and threw it in someone's face.

Oh no! He ripped a parking ticket Laughing Laughing I've ripped up a speeding ticket in front of an officer. It doesn't matter because I still had to pay it. I ripped it because I was frustrated that I got caught for speeding *$187
I would love to look in some of you guys' closets Rolling Eyes I bet many of y'all would be arrested Laughing

In Jr High and High school. Then he went on a mormon mission preaching god and love. 0 trouble since high school and 0 problems (other than penalties) in college. So he was a punk kid, but that was years and years ago. Hardly would classify that as hypocrisy.

Not that drafting Mixon would have been bad but I liked Cook more. Do not look forward to playing him twice next year.

saw Cooks combine numbers and couldn't care less how he looked on a college field. Poor athletes aren't going to succeed often in the NFL - wanted nothing to do with him regardless of his off-the-field issues.

Mixon, I wanted as a football player. I don't concern myself much with off-the-field stuff because none of us have any idea. I trust the GB FO's vetting process so if they had drafted him, I would feel fine about his character.

Gtfo

One day of running drills with no pads definitely out weighs three years of production and becoming the all time leading rusher in FSU history.

of course. there's a minimum threshold for athleticism for most positions. How many successful NFL RBs have his performance numbers? Go find them and report back.

Yeah, not many HBs have had large success with that little athleticism.

Youre the one making lazy accusations. Maybe you should go watch his college tape first and then report back.
