Now, I know he plays in the pass-happy Big 12, but that production is simply too much to ignore as he’s likely never going to get his stock higher than it would be at the end of the season. He’s got a great stage this week vs. Nebraska against a pair of very talented, NFL-caliber cornerbacks. And if he shows as well as he has against the Cornhuskers, he could be poised to take his game to the next level as a potential top-5 receiver prospect in 2011."
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 Jeffrey for the number one receiver spot next year."
Blackmon was expected to increase his production during his sophomore season, but few expected him to turn into, arguably, the most dynamic receiver in college football. In 11 games Blackmon caught an amazing 102 passes for 1,665 yards and 18 touchdowns. He even added a trip to the end zone on one of his four rushing attempts. Blackmon ended up leading the nation in receiving yards per game and receptions per game. As a result, Blackmon took home a ton of hardware, including the Biletnikoff Award.
Blackmon is a superb talent who seems to always make the catch. He has good speed and is a legitimate 6-1, making him tall enough to be a traditional number one receiver in the NFL. As a redshirt sophomore, Blackmon is eligible for the draft and he would likely be a first round selection. There may be some more talented receivers in this class like A.J. Green and Jonathan Baldwin, but even those upperclassman cannot match Blackmon's collegiate production and that counts for something even in Oklahoma State's pass happy offense."
He's intensely competitive, plays with confidence and has terrific ball skills, taking the ball away from defensive backs in the air as he did repeatedly to Nebraska's Prince Amukamara. He overcomes his lack of foot speed with deceptively sharp route running, strong hands and great concentration in traffic, running as fast as he needs to. Although he still needs to mature, his style of play would attract some interest in the top half of the first round if he were to declare."
Wes Bunting is right: He should come out NOW.
