2012 NFL Mock Draft, Round 1: Todd McShay Of ESPN Predicts Rams Take Justin Blackmon In His Final Mock

The first-round of the 2012 NFL Draft will unfold on Thursday night at 7 p.m. CT on ESPN, and Todd McShay's final 2012 NFL Mock Draft has the St. Louis Rams selecting Oklahoma St. Cowboys wide receiver Justin Blackmon with the No. 6 overall pick. The Rams are forced to react to the picks that take place above them after they traded the No. 2 pick to the Washington Redskins a few weeks ago, and here is how McShay thinks the first five picks will shake out: Andrew Luck is headed to the Indianapolis Colts, Robert Griffin III goes to the Washington Redskins, Matt Kalil lands with the Minnesota Vikings, Trent Richardson fits in with the Cleveland Browns and Morris Claiborne drops to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Blackmon is the No. 6-rated prospect in the draft and is the No. 1 wide receiver in SB Nation's rankings at Mocking The Draft.
