With each passing 2012 NFL Mock Draft, the consensus on the St. Louis Rams taking former Oklahoma State Cowboys wide receiver Justin Blackmon continues to grow. The Rams have also been linked to USC Trojans offensive tackle Matt Kalil, but the explosiveness of Blackmon has proven too much for most mock drafters to pass on when the Rams' pick is projected. SB Nation's mock draft blog, Mocking The Draft, is churning out daily coverage as the draft season enters full swing, and in the latest staff mock they have the Rams taking Justin Blackmon:
2. St. Louis Rams - Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
The Rams could go in a number of different directions here. If Brandon Lloyd is to be believed, he will be following Josh McDaniels to New England. Sam Bradford desperately needs a high caliber weapon to throw to. Blackmon might not be the 2nd best player in the draft, but he's a top talent at a position of glaring need. In reality, the Rams will probably be fielding offers for this pick from teams who want to grab Robert Griffin III.
