Everyone knew Justin Blackmon was going to be a top-five pick in the 2012 NFL Draft heading into Monday’s Fiesta Bowl. Over the course of the game, though, the star receiver made it a point to show folks why.
During one particular sequence with about six and a half minutes remaining in the second quarter, Blackmon caught the ball in traffic, turned around, and switched on the jets en route to a 67-yard scoring run. That play exemplified every single weapon in Blackmon’s pro-ready arsenal, and likely cemented his top-tier status with any holdout NFL scouts.
After the game, the Oklahoma State star confirmed that he was ready for the bright lights of the big leagues.
"I think I am going to go ahead and enter the draft and see what happens after that," Blackmon told The Oklahoman.
