OK State WR Justin Blackmon NFL bound

By Will Brinson

Andrew Luck, CBSSports.com's No. 1 overall prospect in the draft, already said he's "absolutely" ready for the NFL and looks primed to enter the draft, regardless of how the Heisman Trophy ceremony plays out.

And another top prospect is NFL-bound as well: Justin Blackmon, the top-ranked wide receiver (and No. 7 overall prospect) on NFLDraftScout.com's big board, is a different story.

Blackmon told ESPN on Wednesday that he intends to declare for the draft following Oklahoma State's appearance against Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl.

"I'm pretty sure that it will be [my last game)," Blackmon said. "I think it's just time. It's that time to go. I came back last year to win a Big 12 championship, set us up for a BCS bowl and I think we did that."

Blackmon's decision, provided the Rams continue their spiral back into putridity, is probably a good one. Both St. Louis and Cleveland (as my colleague Ryan Wilson noted last night) look like teams with high picks that need a playmaker at wide receiver.

In Rang's latest mock draft, Blackmon's currently slated to go off the board No. 2 overall to St. Louis.

It's scary that we're already at the point of the season (Week 14 and beyond) where the NFL Draft starts to come into focus, because that means the actual football season is wrapping up. But we're here, and we're starting to get some idea of what prospects will be leaving college football to make their way into the pros.
