NFL Mock Draft 2012: St. Louis Rams Could Trade Down, Select WR Justin Blackmon

In their latest NFL mock draft, WalterFootball.com projects that the St. Louis Rams will move down a couple of spots in the first round, where they'll then select Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon.

St. Louis has a huge need for a receiver. It brought in Brandon Lloyd for a fourth-round pick - a trade that would end up poorly for both teams involved - but Lloyd told the media that he plans on following Josh McDaniels this offseason. The Patriots hired McDaniels, so I suppose that means they're getting Lloyd as well.

The site is also of the opinion that if St. Louis stays put at No. 2, Southern Cal offensive lineman Matt Kalil is the player the Rams should take.
