Are Mixon's Off-the-Field Incidents Hurting His Draft Stock?

Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon is coming off a one game suspension following an off-the-field incident with a parking attendant.

At least one NFL scouting director says the latest Mixon incident is minor but an earlier incident involving a female at a Norman pub is more concerning and his team wouldn't touch Mixon.

From Bleacher Report
Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon is one of the most talented backs I've seen this season, but he has a history of off the field that is concerning. Mixon was suspended for the entire 2014 season at Oklahoma after allegedly punching a woman in the face. Now he's suspended again, for one week, for breaking team rules. His talent is undeniable, but one scouting director I spoke to said, "We don't touch players who put their hands on women. Period."

Mixon, a redshirt sophomore, will be eligible for the 2017 NFL draft.
