2012 NFL Draft: Jaguars Select Justin Blackmon

New, comments

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.

The Jaguars' next pick isn't scheduled until pick 39 (the 7th pick of the 2nd round) which will take place tomorrow night. Barring a trade back into the first round, the Jaguars are done for the night after trading away a fourth round selection to move up two picks to select Blackmon. Stay tuned to BCC for more reaction and analysis to the selection of Blackmon and the rest of the 2012 NFL Draft.
