ESPN's one and only Mel Kiper released another 2012 NFL Mock Draft on Thursday. Yes, it's another mock draft ... boring. However, Kiper reveals his opinion that the St. Louis Rams could be primed to trade down in the first round.
I had St. Louis as a team likely to move down, given that we know the front office has been openly interested in the idea. But if they're still here, I think Blackmon is the pick. He'll pay immediate dividends for the offense, and Sam Bradford will finally have a target most of us evaluators can see as a potential true No. 1.
St. Louis could be a premium spot for trades this year, as teams look to make a jump up to grab the player they want rather than take their chances with so-so class of first-round picks.
