Justin Blackmon Scouting Report
Justin Blackmon
Justin Blackmon - Oklahoma St. (HT: 6-1 - WT: 205)
Combine 40: N/A - Position Rank: 2 of 10

Positives: Strong player, is able to shield defenders with his arms... Above-average straight line speed... Great hands, catches everything thrown to him... Very tough, will work the middle of the field and fights for the football... Runs well after the catch... Good body control when he's in the air, adjusts to the ball very well... Has a good vertical jump, makes a lot of acrobatic catches... Unbelievably productive this year with 111 catches for 1,782 yards and 20 touchdowns... Had 100+ yards in every game he played in this year won the Biletnikoff award... Nobody has proven capable of slowing him down, had five catches for 157 yards and two touchdowns against Nebraska this year... Has put up bigger numbers than Dez Bryant who has transitioned well to the NFL... Always gives 100 percent on the field, a great competitor.

Negatives: Biggest weakness is that he's not a great route runner, needs to work on making sharper cuts to get separation in man coverage... Played in Oklahoma State's spread offense which focused on getting him the ball and inflated his statistics... Received a DUI in October, 2010 which resulted in a one game suspension... Would benefit staying for his junior year, would challenge Alshon Jeffery for the number one receiver spot next year.
