2012 NFL Draft Results: Jaguars Select Wide Receiver Justin Blackmon At No. 5

After trading with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to move up two spots to No. 5, the Jacksonville Jaguars selected Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Blackmon instantly punches up the wide receiver corps for Mike Mularkey, and will be a prime target for second-year quarterback Blaine Gabbert.

Blackmon was the consensus top receiver in this draft, with elite size and speed. He is one of the most powerful receivers to come out in some time, with Mike Mayock saying he's "as good as anyone he's ever seen in college football at elevating" and finding the ball in the air.

In the trade with Tampa Bay, the Jags gave up a fourth-round pick to the Bucs to move ahead two spots.
