Joe Mixon visiting Broncos on Thursday

The Broncos are the latest team to meet with Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon.

According to multiple reports, Mixon is meeting with the Broncos in Denver on Thursday. He met with the Bengals last weekend and spent time with them as well as the Browns, Lions and Saints before his pro day workout in Norman, Oklahoma last week.

None of those teams were able to speak to Mixon at the NFL’s Scouting Combine because Mixon was barred from participating as a result of his arrest for punching a woman in the face during his first year in college. Mixon entered a guilty plea on a misdemeanor assault charge to settle the criminal case.

If not for that incident, Mixon might be mentioned among the first running backs to come off the board in April. That’s not expected to happen, but the chances he’ll get picked likely go up as more teams meet with him and gauge the risk/reward ratio for picking him up.

The Broncos have C.J. Anderson, Devontae Booker and Kapri Bibbs returning at running back.

    Please don’t EVER waste a 1st round pick on a RB.

    Can he throw the ball?

    Its good to see teams are willing to give him a chance.

    Smokescreen. He’s destined to be a Cowboy in the Hardy and Elliott tradition.

    I’m guessing Mixon will get drafted by the Cowboys, Bengals or Raiders. The teams that do not care about a guys character.

    He is going to give whatever team that drafts him a “black eye”… better hope they are wearing their mouth guard too.

    Be a good pick up in 3rd or 4th round for Denver.

    Please stay away from Mixon. Maybe Cowboys will need him if Ezekiel keeps up his “Deplorable” behaviors. Players should be responsible for behaviors. It is the responsibility of the NFL to have all players represent the SHIELD properly.

    Wonder if he hit the first lady he saw when he came to the office

    “Please don’t EVER waste a 1st round pick on a RB.”

    Yeah, they might lead the league in rushing.

    He should be a good locker room presence. Along with Aquib Talib.

  12. illumination666 says: Mar 16, 2017 3:05 PM

    Is he going to be blocking for himself as well?

    Another chance for the holier than thou to pretend that they’re concerned about abuse of women. In reality, all they are really doing is trying to impress us with their moral superiority. Then, after posting, they’re on to sites that don’t depict women in flattering ways.

    Elway has spent three picks on day one and two running backs, including Booker. The other two are off the roster and only one is still in the league of those two as a backup. This kid reminds me too much of Knowshon Moreno when what they need is another Clinton Portis, Bobby Humphrey or Floyd Little.

    What kind of man sucker punches a woman in the face? What kind of character does your organization have if you invite this guy for a visit to potentially become a part of your team? No team invited Ray Rice after he hit his wife. Why is this trash bag getting a chance?
    I hope someone punches Mixon and his mother the way he hit that girl.

    Mixon should switch to defense. He’s a hard hitter.

  17. Rolo Tomassi says: Mar 16, 2017 3:57 PM

    Elway is trash

  18. raiderinva says: Mar 16, 2017 4:16 PM

    I kind of like this. There is no more who had interest smoke screen, and if you don’t bring the young man in how can you say you did your homework on him? It’s a fact that he is going to be drafted. Restricting him from the draft has simply exposed those teams that have a need and are willing to overlook issues.

  19. kissbillsrings says: Mar 16, 2017 4:29 PM

    I’m glad he’s getting invites & more exposure….
    I hope he’s successful on whatever team gives him a chance….
    I find it quite funny/ironic that SO MANY of past so called stars of the game & legends of the game were as bad if not worse, but due to today’s technology & social media just about every thing they do now is thrown into the spotlight to be disected & distorted it’s ridiculous…..
    Sensationalism is what it’s all about now…find dirt, create controversy & force an agenda…..feed the sheeple!!!!

    Hey Dummy, do you see the irony in your comment?

    Elway has built a dynasty by taking advantage of everyone else’s mistakes. He hired some pretty good talent evaluators and they get great value picks every year. If Mixon is still available in the third round, phones will start ringing with teams trying to move up. Denver might be one of those teams. Mixon is not only a great runner, but he’s an excellent receiver too. Running back is no longer a premier position, but the guys with great receiving skills are much more valuable. Denver has been getting by with so-so RBs. Mixon is an elite talent that they could get at a bargain price. The Denver fans trust Elway’s judgement, and rightfully so. If he welcomes Mixon, they will too.

    Hoping the kid doesn’t get drafted by Cleveland. We’ve had enough problems.
