2012 NFL Mock Draft: Consensus Building That St. Louis Rams Will Take Justin Blackmon

What the St. Louis Rams will actually do with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft is obviously still a mystery. Aside from the ability to pick just about any player they please, they also may choose to ransom off the pick to whichever team fancies Baylor Bears QB Robert Griffin III the most. If the Rams do indeed keep the pick, there seems to be a consensus building that the they will select Oklahoma State Cowboys WR Justin Blackmon, and SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber has St. Louis doing exactly that in his updated Mock Draft:

2. St. Louis Rams, Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State

Consensus says that Baylor's Robert Griffin III gets drafted here. He might, and the Rams would be more than happy to trade the pick for a heaping helping of draft picks to fill in the talent gaps throughout their roster. If they don't trade down, there will be a debate between Blackmon and Kalil. Sam Bradford could use both, but a third season with Danny Amendola as his best receiver would be a tragedy.
