According to the latest NFL mock draft on SportingNews.com, if Alabama running back Trent Richardson is available when the St. Louis Rams are on the clock with the sixth overall pick, they won’t hesitate to take him.
If Richardson isn’t available, they’d likely take Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon. Either way they can’t go wrong.
I would think the Rams would prefer to draft Blackmon over Richardson since it would quarterback Sam Bradford a legitimate number one target at the receiver position.
At the end of the day, the Rams likely have Richardson rated higher then they do Blackmon and in reality, Steven Jackson won’t be around much longer.
