Scouting Report
While it is unclear when the first receiver in April's draft will be selected, it will almost certainly be Blackmon. The two-time All-American and two-time Biletnikoff Award winner is widely regarded as the most explosive wideout in the draft and is expected to immediately fill the void for a team in need of a productive target. Blackmon decided to forgo his senior season at Oklahoma State, and it would be difficult to fault that decision as he seems to have little left to prove at the college level. Over his final two seasons with the Cowboys, Blackmon caught 232 passes for 3,304 yards and 38 touchdowns. He seemed to step up his game when it mattered most, catching 17 passes for 303 yards and five TDs in his last two bowl games. While Blackmon isn't the fastest receiver in the draft, he has the strength and the moves to create separation at the line of scrimmage and get open. He has excellent hands and catches pretty much everything thrown his direction. He also excels at leaping to catch passes without breaking stride and isn't afraid to go across the middle of the field to make plays. Blackmon ran routes at the scouting combine but didn't participate in the 40-yard dash, the jumps, the shuttles or the three-cone drill because of a sore hamstring. The only workout he took part in was the bench press, and he finished with 14 reps. That's not expected to affect Blackmon's draft stock, and he still figures to be a top-10 pick and perhaps even a top-five selection.
