"KUSA—The Denver Broncos will become the latest team to visit with talented but controversial Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon at the team’s headquarters.
Mixon met with several teams during his Pro Day last week, met privately last weekend with the Cincinnati Bengals and is scheduled to meet with the Broncos on Thursday at team headquarters.
Ordinarily, the Broncos don’t consider bringing in a player that carries the type of character red flag that is part of Mixon’s scouting report. Mixon, however, is considered a first- or second-round talent and after the NFL did not permit him to attend the Scouting Combine two weeks ago, the Broncos and at least a dozen other teams have been scheduling personal visits with the prospect at their headquarters.
“I think he’s an outstanding individual,’’ said Peter Schaffer, the Denver-based agent who represents Mixon. “He’s been nothing but fantastic every step along the way with me. Everybody who’s come in contact with him has come away very impressed with his character and his demeanor and his positive attitude, as well as his love of football as well as his acknowledgement he’s made a mistake. I expect the people he meets with will come away with the same feeling.’’
