If you're frustrated by last night's game - especially the refereeing - and want to think about football, this week's scouting report is on Oakley (CA) Freedom running back Joe Mixon. When I was asked a month or two ago for my wish list of 16 recruits from the 2014 class, Mixon was neck-and-neck with Elijah Hood for my top choice of running back. He has a good combination of speed, power, size, and receiving ability, and he just appears to be a very good all-around prospect. Michigan made his top fifteen list not long ago, which means there's at least a chance.
"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
