I guess that would depend on who you ask. If you are a decision maker for The St.Louis Rams; how would you respond to the posted question? I would look at a few things:
2. At this stage The Rams do not have a receiver who can create separation and produce yards after the catch.
3. A lack of a vertical threat keeps defenses near the line of scrimmage where they can; suffocate the run, bring consistant pressure without the fear of getting burned deep, and force mistakes.
This is starting to look similiar to the Ram offense of the past few years. So why Blackmon? He is a versatile receiver who can be effective on the outside or in the slot. He does a great job on selling a route to get pass defenders. Blackmon's quickness makes him hard to jam on the line of scrimmage. He is a good downfield blocker. Blackmon can create yards after the catch.
Justin Blackmon is not a messiah nor a savior. He is a talented receiver that could benefit The Rams with his skill set. So; Is Blackmon worth the sixth pick? I say yes. Especially when compared with the receiving group of the past three seasons. Just my opinions.
