Drafting Justin Blackmon with the third pick in the 2012 NFL draft would be the best move for the Minnesota Vikings.

The Vikings are in prime position to draft one of their three needs—wide receiver, left tackle and cornerback. The names that most Vikings fans should be familiar with—because of the fact that the Vikings season was virtually over in November—are Morris Claiborne, Matt Kalil and Justin Blackmon.

Here are the five reasons why Justin Blackmon should be the surefire selection for the Minnesota Vikings in the 2012 NFL draft.
