2012 NFL Mock Draft: ESPN's Todd McShay Also Has The Rams Selecting Justin Blackmon

The St. Louis' Rams hold the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, but don't expect it to stay that way for very long. That No. 2 pick is coveted by several teams yearning for Heisman winner and former Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, which means St. Louis is likely to make a deal. The two most talked about trading partners are the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Browns. Either way, St. Louis will still be looking at a Top 10 pick with a slew of a appealing prospects to patch up one of the Rams' many holes.

No matter where the Rams pick, it's likely they'll be targeting help at wide receiver or on the offensive line. ESPN's Todd McShay released his latest mock draft today, and he's going with the former. Like so many other mocks, McShay has St. Louis tied to Oklahoma St. wideout Justin Blackmon.

With the Rams intent on trading down, this projection is made with the assumption they will pick somewhere between No. 4 and No. 8 overall. Blackmon is the top receiver on the board and would give QB Sam Bradford the kind if perimeter weapon he needs. St. Louis could also opt for help in the secondary with LSU CB Morris Claiborne, and there are even rumblings Alabama RBTrent Richardson could be in play as a complement to Bradford.
