Report: Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon to visit Los Angeles Chargers

Joe Mixon is adding a third leg to his pre-draft visits with AFC West teams.

After making stops to meet the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders earlier this month, Mixon will next visit the Los Angeles Chargers, per ESPN's Jim Trotter.

It's no surprise that Mixon, who has also visited the Cincinnati Bengals, is keeping a busy schedule of team meetings. He's one of the most talented RBs in the 2017 NFL Draft. However, clubs didn't get a chance to interview him at the NFL Scouting Combine, as he was barred from the event under a conduct policy.

Mixon punched a female OU student in 2014 and was charged with acts resulting in gross injury. The case was settled with a plea agreement, and Mixon, who was suspended for the 2014 season, served one year of probation, counseling, and 100 hours of community service.

He's viewed as undraftable by some NFL teams, per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, but it appears clubs have high interest in getting a chance to speak with him before making a final evaluation.

Mixon met with representatives from the Detroit Lions, New Orleans Saints, Cleveland Browns and Bengals on the eve of his pro day two weeks ago.

The Chargers lost backup RB Danny Woodhead to the Baltimore Ravens in free agency this offseason, leaving a hole to fill behind Melvin Gordon.
