Whether it’s off-field issues, injuries or a poor work ethic, draft history is riddled with talented players who failed to live up to high expectations. Here are 10 picks from the 2017 NFL draft who have the capacity for big success on the field, but also carry plenty of risks and could easily fall short of the hype. Arguably the most polarizing prospect in the entire draft, Mixon’s on-field talent is undeniable. Even in a loaded running back class, the former Sooner has a strong case to be the best of the bunch, but serious off-field
