At first glance, Justin Blackmon's decision to attend the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine might seem like a foolish one. The former Oklahoma State stud and two-time Biletnikoff Award winner is already considered the top prospect at wide receiver in the 2012 NFL Draft, virtually guaranteeing him a spot as a top-10 pick.
