2012 NFL Mock Draft: Justin Blackmon Becomes A St. Louis Rams WR In Latest CBS Sports Mock

The St. Louis Rams have been blessed with premium draft position in the 2012 NFL draft. With the number two overall pick, they can look to upgrade at offensive tackle, wide receiver or cornerback by targeting either USC Trojans OT Matt Kalil, Oklahoma State Cowboys WR Justin Blackmon or LSU Tigers CB Morris Claiborne. All are expected to be on the board after the Indianapolis Colts almost certainly select Stanford Cardinal quarterback Andrew luck with the number one overall pick. Rob Rang of CBS Sports thinks the Rams will provide some help to their franchise quarterback:

Sam Bradford is a franchise quarterback -- I believe it, and more important, the Rams believe it. Don't expect them to draft another passer, though trading the pick to a QB-desperate team is certainly a strong possibility. The Rams need receiver help for Bradford desperately and may look to the back to back Biletnikoff winning Blackmon -- though he'd provide much greater value outside of the top five rather than as the No. 2 pick of the draft.

It will be very interesting to see if Jeff Fisher and the Rams look to stretch the value of their pick and aim for a huge payoff with Justin Blackmon at No.2 overall
