With the sixth pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams select Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State.
(Cardsdefense) This is a no brainer. Jeff Fisher and Co. are off to great start rebuilding this team. After securing a bounty of draft picks in the RGIII trade the Rams have drafted the consensus #1 receiver in the 2012 draft class. This has got to be a dream come true for Sam Bradford who finally has a talented playmaker to throw to. We can now look forward to epic battles of JB81 vs PP21 for several years.
(blank_38) The Rams have invested heavily in WR without much luck the past couple of years. With their pick, they will choose Justin Blackmon out of Oklahoma St. He is a two-time Biletnikoff Award winner and would more than likely have been the third wide receiver selected in the 2011 NFL Draft after A.J. Green and Julio Jones. He's a physical, super competitive wideout with reliable hands and should become Anquan Boldin for the Rams. The only knocks on him are he's 6'1 and his speed leaves something to be desired but the Rams get the guy they may have take 2nd overall at #5.
Another perfect pick with the talent and the need to match on behalf of the team. Cardinals fans have seen the difference with a guy like Larry Fitzgerald. Blackmon is not Fitz, but he will have a huge impact and give Sam Bradford the target he needs.
Bad news for the NFC West.
