Hixon provides a lot of versatility. And by choosing Randle, that doesn't mean "relegate Hixon to ST only." Personally, I'd rather Randle. He's shown me enough up to this point where I believe he can be integrated into the scheme and really threaten defenses in ways I dont believe Hixon can. Hixon has made some amazing catches, but imo he just isnt threatening defenses consistently. They single up on him 99% of the time, part of the issues was Hixon and Bennett werent doing enough during that slump (but no one was really so hard to single them out).
Randle has made enough plays where I think he could be more dangerous on a snap to snap basis. I may be jumping the gun a little, but I think Randles play at least has earned the right to discuss the possibility.
