NFL Mock Draft 2012: Will Justin Blackmon Fall To The Rams?

With the second overall packaged and shipped to the Washington Redskins, the St. Louis Rams' first round pick is seemingly going to come down to whether or not top wide receiver Justin Blackmon ends up sliding to them at No. 6. That is, of course, if the Rams' purported interest in Blackmon is serious and genuine, but if it is, SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber projects in his new 2012 mock draft that the Oklahoma State star will be available when St. Louis' pick comes around.

After the two quarterbacks go off the board, Van Bibber has the Minnesota Vikings taking Matt Kalil, the Cleveland Browns taking Trent Richardson and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking Morris Claiborne. As far as the Rams are concerned, the Browns are seemingly the only obstacle in the way of them securing Blackmon, with the Bucs having signed Vincent Jackson in the off-season and the Vikings with more serious needs than wide receiver.
