2012 NFL Mock Draft: Mel Kiper Projects Rams To Select Justin Blackmon With No. 2 Pick

ESPN's Mel Kiper recently released the newest version of his 2012 NFL Mock Draft, and he projects the St. Louis Rams to select Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon with the second overall pick. Blackmon is considered one of the elite prospects in this draft after another exceptional year with the Cowboys.

It will be interesting to see if Blackmon is willing to run in Indy. He could bypass it and wait for his pro day given his current status. St. Louis is in desperate need of a weapon in the passing game, and will get one with one of its first two picks. Remember, it could also lose Brandon Lloyd in free agency.

Kiper adds that numerous teams could be in the mix for a trade here in order to acquire Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, including Miami, Washington and Cleveland with the No. 2 pick. The Rams already have a young QB in Sam Bradford, and now they just need to add weapons to see how good he can be.
