2012 NFL Draft: St. Louis Rams On The Scene To Watch Justin Blackmon At OSU Pro Day

The St. Louis Rams have a contingent on hand in Stillwater, OK, for the Oklahoma State pro day event. According to Jim Thomas of the Post Dispatch, Rams director of college scouting John Mancini and wide receivers coach Ray Sherman are on the ground representing the Rams.

Obviously, they are there to watch wide receiver Justin Blackmon, a potential top-5 pick and a player of great interest to the receiver-starved Rams.

Sherman has a connection to the area, having coached receivers for the Cowboys. More notable is that Sherman and Dez Bryant, the last top receiver to come out of Oklahoma State, had a solid relationship in Dallas. Some believe that Sherman helped keep Bryant's maturity issues at bay with the Cowboys.

Blackmon is considered by many to be the top receiver in the NFL draft. He has some important questions to answer at his pro day, not the least of which is his forty time to reassure teams about his downfield speed.
