Report: Four teams were willing to draft Joe Mixon

By Michael Dixon

One of the more controversial picks of the 2017 NFL Draft came when the Cincinnati Bengals selected Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon in the second round.

How many other teams would have done the same?¬†According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, not many.

Mixon’s pick was controversial as he not only had an assault against a woman in his past, but it was caught on tape. Violence, specifically violence against women, is taken more seriously now than it has been in the past. Still, if someone is talented enough, someone will give him a chance to play.

Clearly, Mixon’s talent is NFL worthy. At the end of the day, that’s what mattered to the Bengals.
