Source: Justin Blackmon will not enter NFL Draft

Justin Blackmon will play football at OSU next year, according to a source close to the program.

Blackmon apparently told several people in San Antonio that he was in fact staying one more year and would make it official after the first of the year. Now, most of the people I'm hearing this from are OSU Boosters, so take it for what it's worth. Maybe he was just telling them what they want to hear - but I doubt it.

The source says he wants to stay in Stillwater to make sure that he is the No. 1 receiver taken in the 2011 NFL draft. He's currently listed at No. 3 on most NFL draft boards behind Alabama's Julio Jones and Georgia's AJ Green.

A return to Stllwater would be a smart move for Blackmon if nothing changes with his NFL stock, and great for the fate of next year's team. More to come...
