2012 NFL Draft Machine: WRs catch on
By Mike Sando
The recently activated 2012 NFL Draft Machine lets us quickly play around with various mock scenarios.
The other eight divisional bloggers and I are working on one for publication Monday.
I'm picking for the NFC West teams and couldn't help but notice how frequently wide receiver factored into the decision making for the St. Louis Rams, Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers in particular.
Justin Blackmon was an obvious consideration for the Rams at No. 6. Michael Floyd entered into consideration for the Cardinals at No. 13. The 49ers do not pick until No. 30, making it less clear which wideouts might be available.
The chart shows current wide receivers for NFC West teams. The Rams' Danny Amendola is a restricted free agent. The others are signed and active.
Enjoy the draft machine. I'll break out my thoughts on NFC West possibilities when our mock runs Monday.
