2012 NFL Mock Draft: Cleveland Browns Select Justin Blackmon

In the latest SB Nation NFL Mock Draft, in which individual team bloggers select players for their respective teams, Dawgs By Nature selected Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon with the fourth pick for the Cleveland Browns.

Blackmon was the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year last season as well as a two-time Biletnikoff Award winner. Though the Browns have been in search of a replacement for Colt McCoy at quarterback, they are in desperate need of upgrading the wide receiver position. Blackmon is the best available at the position.

Here's what Dawgs By Nature had to say about their selection:

I'm not making excuses for quarterback Colt McCoy, but the only way he is going to have a chance at getting better this coming season is if he has better talent around him. That's where Justin Blackmon comes in. The Browns are thin enough at receiver where Blackmon would start immediately, probably alongside last year's second-round pick, Greg Little.
