For the next couple of months I am going to be running a series of articles giving you a breakdown of the top 25 on my 2012 NFL Draft big board. Just last week, I compiled a list of the top 200 prospects in the draft after watching extensive videos and looking at the play of each individual.

“It’s a little tender,” he said.
Blackmon said he was planning on running, but that he decided against it after “listening to people who have my best interests.”

Video compilation of defending Big 12 champions spring practice
After watching this video of Oklahoma State football practice, released by OSU Athletics on Friday, I cannot help but be amped to go out there and flip some tires in to an end zone and back, or have a tug of war with people screaming at me. LET’S GO!
The defending Big 12 champions could be set to be taking a step...
The Oklahoma State receiver draws raves, but a perception that he's too slow is hurting.
The big question about Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon’s ability to thrive at the professional level is his speed. Blackmon, projected to be the first receiver off the board, said Friday that he is planning to eliminate that concern. “I know I’m not slow,” Blackmon said, via Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel. “I’m hoping…
