101ESPN St. Louis audio: Miklasz Show

By Mike Sando

The St. Louis Rams' options with the sixth pick in the 2012 NFL draft provided one discussion point for my latest conversation with 101ESPN St. Louis' Bernie Miklasz.

Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon has been a popular projected pick for the Rams, reflecting their obvious need for a starting-caliber wide receiver.

I'm beginning to question whether St. Louis will head in that direction and wondering more whether the Rams would even favor Michael Floyd over Blackmon among the available receivers. That is a departure from earlier thinking, based upon recent conversations with NFL people trying to get a feel for the top picks.

This could be over-thinking things. Then again, who over-thinks the NFL draft besides everyone?
