2012 NFL Mock Draft: Sam Bradford The Big Winner In New Scenario

The National Football Post rolled out their latest 2012 NFL mock draft this week. Analyst Wes Bunting puts a familiar name in the sixth spot for the St. Louis Rams.

Bunting's pick is Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon, a common pick for the Rams in a number of mock drafts, as you can see from the endless string of mock draft links in this stream.

Here is Bunting's take:

Getting a big-play receiver for quarterback Sam Bradford is almost a must at this point. Blackmon can line up all over the offense and has the skill set to produce as a rookie.

The Rams signed free agent receiver Steve Smith, recently of the Eagles, in March to a so-called "prove it" deal, giving the oft-injured receiver a chance to bounce back in St. Louis. Adding Blackmon would represent a definite upgrade to the offense, but many question the prospect's ceiling and whether or not it justifies the sixth pick in a deep group of receivers.
