I'm not saying draft Mixon in the 1st, but I think he'd be a great fit and would make this offense elite if Ballard got him early in the 3rd. If he starts rising in draft stock, may have to get him late round 2.
-First, he would have veteran leadership at the RB position to help him mature in Frank Gore and Turbin.
-Second, he wouldn't be asked to be the guy right away, since Gore is still here. He could take over possibly mid season if he's ready or in 2018.
-He's a great pass catching, space RB which Indy needs since Andrew needs an elite option out of the backfield to throw to.
-I believe he is best in a zone blocking scheme, which I believe Indy has switched to now.
-And finally, because Ballard has shown to take a chance on a player who made a bad mistake before (Marcus Peters, Tyreek Hill)
Obviously Ballard would have to be sure that Mixon has shown signs of maturity since his incident, but this locker room seems to have gotten stronger with the addition of Simon and a strong RB group to help guide him to be a star.
