50. Joe Mixon

Joe Mixon was a beast of a Running Back at the University of Oklahoma, though off-field issues likely cost him on Draft Day, where he fell to the Second Round of the 2017 Draft, landing with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Mixon was decent as a rookie (628 Rushing Yards, 4 TDs), but he made his expected move to a higher echelon of RBs, as a sophomore, breaking 1,100 Rushing Yards, and doing so again in 2019.  An injury held Mixon to only six Games in 2020, but last season Mixon had a personal best 1,205 Rushing Yards, with 13 Touchdowns on the ground.  He was rewarded with his first Pro Bowl, and was instrumental in the Bengals march to a Super Bowl appearance.

Currently in his sixth season in the NFL, Mixon could break 7,000 Yards From Scrimmage in 2022, and is a player in his peak.
