Another consideration on Blackmon's size

INDIANAPOLIS — Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon does not fit the height-weight profile for wideouts drafted among the top few picks.

Blackmon is also entering the NFL at a time when the league is outlawing the most dangerous collisions, however. Physical dimensions might not matter as much under the current rules.

Teams will still feel better using their earliest draft choices for players with the strongest physical credentials. I just thought it might help to account for ways the game is changing.

Blackmon would be a logical consideration for St. Louis, which picks second overall and could be in prime position to trade back from that spot, allowing another team to select a quarterback.
