Miami could be a spot where he gets drafted if he falls, Philbin will want the elite talent level at WR he had in Green Bay and Blackmon and Marshall would be great to see.
Blackmon will make or break his draft status when he runs the 40 at his pro day. Till then it is anybody's guess whether he will go top 5 or drop. It is very similar IMO, to the Fitzgerald draft year. When Fitz finally ran a 4.46 I believe, he confirmed his top 5 ranking.
If Blackmon can match Fitz's time, 4.46-4.50, he's a cinch to go top 5, if he runs in the 4.60 range, he drop into the teens.
