2012 NFL Draft Order: Where Will Justin Blackmon, Top WRs Go?

0 of 5

    How the 2012 NFL draft will turn out and which players are truly the best have yet to be determined with the upcoming Senior Bowl playing a big role in how players will rank.

    Of course, Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Justin Blackmon and Trent Richardson are among the top players overall, but let's see who ranks in the top five right now with Blackmon.

Alshon Jeffrey

1 of 5

    The junior from the University of South Carolina declared that he would enter the draft earlier this month, along with teammate Stephon Gilmore. 

    Jeffrey has great size to be playing in the NFL at 6'4" and about 230 pounds.  He was a huge contributor in South Carolina's success this year.  Mel Kiper predicts him being drafted by the San Francisco 49ers since he can come up with big plays.

Michael Floyd

2 of 5

    Michael Floyd has been phenomenal for Notre Dame.  He may not have the best track record off the field, but he is a physical player and has great size. 

    The Chicago Bears could benefit from having a hot, young wide receiver to help out Jay Cutler.

Justin Blackmon

3 of 5

    Although he recently said he would like to work with Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees, Oklahoma State Cowboys WR Justin Blackmon will be going long before their picks.  The St. Louis Rams have the No. 2 pick of the draft and will probably pick up Blackmon.

Kendall Wright

4 of 5

    The senior from Baylor is the school's all-time leading receiver and a second-team All-American.  He broke out during the Alamo Bowl with seven catches for 91 yards and one touchdown.  Wright should wind up in Cleveland after the draft, unless they lose faith in Colt McCoy and draft another QB.

Dwight Jones

5 of 5

    While UNC didn't have a huge passing game this season, Dwight Jones was right at the front of it.  At 6'4", 225 pounds, he has great size and agility, which will be a huge advantage in the NFL.  This season he had 12 touchdowns and caught 85 passes.  I predict him landing with the Washington Redskins.
