The Skinny: Mixon is an every down back who can do everything well. He looks bigger than his listed 6-1, 205 pound frame and runs with a nice blend of balance, power and speed. He has a great feel for the position and has that innate ability to sense where a defensive player is coming and either make a quick cut to elude him or take a glancing blow. Mixon never seems to get his square up, which given his size, is surprising but a testament to his mature running style.
