Appearing on Sirius XM Radio Thursday morning, NFL Films' Greg Cosell suggested Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon lacks the characteristics of an elite NFL receiver prospect.
"I struggle with Justin Blackmon," Cosell said. "He's not an elite prospect like Andre or Calvin Johnson. (Michael) Floyd's right there with him." Floyd has a couple of inches and at least five pounds on Blackmon, and ran 4.47 on a slow track at the Combine. Blackmon didn't run in Indy, but ran 4.46 on a fast track at his Pro Day. On tape, they are similar prospects. Don't be surprised if Blackmon falls out of the top six, but both he and Floyd are gone by pick No. 17.
