When Dez Bryant left OSU to the NFL, and ultimately the Dallas Cowboys, many figured Hubert Anyiam to be the number one receiver. That didn't quite pan out.
Blackmon settled into the role of jaw-dropping receiver with ease. In every game this season, Blackmon racked up over 100 yards and had at least one touchdown reception.
With his uncanny ability to make the tough catch combined with his breakaway speed, Blackmon finished the regular season with 1,665 yards receiving, 18 receiving touchdowns, a 69 yard rushing touchdown, and for good measure, a punt block that he returned for a touchdown.
His name has been included in Heisman talk the whole season (there's no chance) and is up for the Biletnikoff Award (there's a good chance).
This guy did it all and was rewarded with being named an All-American as well as the Big XII Offensive Player of the Year, the first wide receiver to do so.
