NFL Mock Draft 2012: Rams Select WR Michael Floyd In Latest Mock Draft

The latest mock draft from NFL draft analyst Brad Wells foresees the St. Louis Rams missing out on coveted Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon. Selecting at the No. 17 following their blockbuster trade with the Washington Redskins, the Rams are widely believed to be looking to upgrade their offense. With Blackmon off the board at No. 12, Wells thinks they will stay committed to the wide receiver position -- and they won't be disappointed:

No. 17: Michael Floyd | Wide receiver | Notre Dame: The regular season hasn't started, and already Les Snead is in the driver's seat for executive of the year. The Rams load up on more picks, drop down to pick 17, and still get what they wanted: A wide receiver with, potentially, more upside and speed than Justin Blackmon.

Floyd, the the Fighting Irish standout, had another strong season in 2011, catching 100 passes and nearly 10 touchdowns. Here is a look at his stats:
