Jags, WR Blackmon agree to terms

ESPN - [Full Article]

Jacksonville first-round pick Justin Blackmon agreed to terms Monday with the Jaguars.

The Oklahoma State wide receiver is the last first-round pick to reach a deal. He was chosen fifth overall by the Jaguars.

The contract will be worth about $18.5 million for four years, which is the maximum for a fifth pick under the NFL's rookie wage system.

Fantasy Impact: 

We rank Blackmon just 50th right now, but he'll try to follow in the footsteps of Mike Willliams two years ago and AJ Green last year as rookie WRs who burst onto the scene to be valuable fantasy commodities. Blackmon will likely go before his rank would indicate. He's got an ADP of the 11th round, so you may need to take a shot at him there. The other receivers around him in our rankings are looking at the 15th or 16th rounds. Blaine Gabbert, the likely starting QB, wasn't impressive last year, and running back Maurice Jones-Drew is holding out, so things have the potential to be ugly offensively in Jacksonville.
