NFL Draft 2012: Rams Focus On Receivers, According To Report

With less than a week to go until the 2012 NFL Draft, it's hard to tell what is a smokescreen, what isn't a smokescreen, or what is a double-reverse smokescreen. But, according to Sports Illustrated's Peter King, the St. Louis Rams are "zeroing in" on the wide receiver position, with the team having worked out both Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon and Notre Dame's Michael Floyd last week.

King reports that the Rams likely didn't see anything in the workouts that would convince them to bump Floyd above Blackmon on their draft board. He also believes that even though the Rams don't view Blackmon as a prospect on the same level as current Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green, Jeff Fisher and the St. Louis front office are comfortable with taking Blackmon at No. 6 overall, if the draft shakes out that way.

King did also say, though, that one thing that could complicate matters would be Alabama running back Trent Richardson being available when they pick.
