2012 NFL Draft: Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State Goes No. 5 To Jacksonville Jaguars

When the 2012 NFL Draft began nobody really knew what the Jacksonville Jaguars would do with the seventh overall selection in the draft. Now we do. They traded it, along with other considerations, to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the No. 5 overall pick.

The Jaguars used the pick to select Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon. The move gives second-year quarterback Blaine Gabbert a big-play threat on the outside.

The move also means that Rutgers University fans will have to wait just a little bit longer to see what the Buccaneers will do with the first selection of the Greg Schiano era as head coach. Schiano is, of course, the rookie coach who left Rutgers for the Tampa Bay job.
