My apologies for not getting this posted yesterday afternoon; life got in the way. Enough small talk. Let's get this ship pointed right back at that iceberg.

With the 6th overall pick of the 2012 BRB Mock Draft, the St Louis Rams select Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon. Sam Bradford is crying out for a reliable target, and in Blackmon he gains a wide receiver who will instantly upgrade the Rams' mediocre at best receiving core. Despite recent competition from Michael Floyd, Blackmon is the consensus top receiver in the draft and will go here, allowing Jeff Fisher to concentrate more on the defense and offensive line later in the draft, as there is not the value to be had at these positions at No. 6 with Blackmon still on the board. It will also allow St Louis to begin to compete within the division and, although they will need much more than just Blackmon to mount a charge, it may just help elevate Bradford's play to his fairly successful rookie year standard.

Your thoughts? The Jacksonville Jaguars are now on the clock.
