2012 Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon To Declare For NFL Draft

Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon has been tearing it up down in Stillwater essentially since he's got there, but according to ProFootballTalk.com's Evan Silva, the 2012 Fiesta Bowl will be his last in the Black and Orange, and will take the next step in his career to the NFL Draft.

Blackmon would elaborate on his thoughts on leaving OSU: 

"It's that time to go. I came back last year to win a Big 12 championship, set us up for a BCS bowl and I think we did that."    

Blackmon caught 113 passes for 1336 yards and 15 touchdowns for the Cowboys this season, and is a finalist for the 2011 Bilitnikoff Award, going to the best receiver in college football each year. Blackmon already won the award last season along with the Big-12 Offensive Player of the Year Award as well. 

There is no doubt the the junior is NFL ready, and will likely be a high first round draft pick in 2012. He will undoubtedly want to shine in his last game with OSU, which doesn't bode well for the Stanford Cardinal defense.
