Joe Mixon has been cruising through the draft process getting private workouts left and right. Well after he did not show up on Gil Brandt’s top 150 list Gil told reporters that he would not touch Mixon because his problems started back in high school.
Today, a report came out from Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, and while it this incident has been widely overlooked it is concerning. A man named Anthony Hernandez alleged that Mixon punched his daughter in high school.
“I know for a fact he threw my daughter to the ground and hit her. I went to the school and . . . they hid him in the office. He got no punishment. The police even came. I was escorted off the campus as if I did something wrong. These are simply the facts, he’s a woman beater,” Hernandez said in a report read by the lawyer for Amelia Molitor, the victim in Mixon’s highly publicized incident at Oklahoma.
If this is true, it could push teams away from Mixon.
