2012 NFL Draft: Justin Blackmon Unlikely To Run At The Combine

Those wanting to know just how fast Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon is will have to wait until March 7 to find out. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Blackmon is unlikely to run at the Scouting Combine this week in Indianapolis.

Many are still trying to determine whether or not Blackmon merits a top-five selection, particular those watching what the St. Louis Rams will do in the draft. How will this decision, assuming he does not run, impact Blackmon's draft status?

The track at the Combine is said to be slow. Blackmon's draft stock depends heavily on less than a tenth of a second. A 4.4 forty would almost certainly ensure a top-five pick. A 4.5 would be status quo, leaving other factors to decide his fate, and anything above a time in the mid-4.5s would fuel doubts about Blackmon as a total package, capable of working as a deep threat.

Of course, teams will not have to long to see Blackmon run the forty. Oklahoma State has their pro day on March 7.

Mocking the Draft has a complete run down of the stakes for Blackmon at the Combine this week.
