2012 NFL Draft: Jaguars Select Justin Blackmon

With the 7th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars selected Oklahoma State Cowboys wide receiver Justin Blackmon. 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.

According to Mocking The Draft's scouting report on Blackmon, he is comparable to Anquan Boldin because he lacks top end speed but makes up for it with strength and physicality at the line of scrimmage and over the middle of the field.
