Bengals selected Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon with the No. 48 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.
Mixon (6’1/228) was the Lightning to Samaje Perine’s Thunder as a Sooner, compiling a career 300/2,027/17 (6.8 YPC) rushing line with 65/894/9 (13.8 YPR) receiving. Also a standout pass-protection back, PFF College charged Mixon with just one QB hurry allowed on 48 blocking snaps. Mixon’s career 8.00 yards-per-touch average dwarfs Leonard Fournette (6.63), Christian McCaffrey (7.02), and Dalvin Cook (7.05), and Mixon’s workout metrics are eerily similar to Ezekiel Elliott’s with 4.43-4.50 speed, a 35-inch vertical, and 21 reps on the bench. Mixon’s off-field woes have been well documented, but his on-field talent isn’t in any doubt. Long term, he has Ricky Watters-level upside as a combination runner-receiver. Mixon's addition could make Jeremy Hill available for trade in Cincy. Hill has shown nothing since his rookie year, and Mixon should have no trouble passing him on the depth chart.
