Justin Blackmon, Matt Kalil

Blackmon, Kalil are ‘elite prospects’

NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks broke down the top prospects in the 2012 NFL Draft into three distinct categories: Elite prospects, blue chips and red chips. Justin Blackmon and Matt Kalil are among the six players listed under “Elite prospects.”

Blackmon and Kalil are joined by Stanford QB Andrew Luck, Baylor QB Robert Griffin III, Alabama RB Trent Richardson and LSU CB Morris Claiborne as players Brooks describes as “these players should earn Pro Bowl recognition early in their careers, and rank among the top five players at their respective positions within two to three years.” Brooks based his rankings on a few conservations with several scouts around the league.
