Amukamara - Better against Blackmon than it appears

The big knock on Amukamara (that I was parroting from KC Joyner earlier) was that he got torched by Justin Blackmon, the star receiver at Oklahoma State, when they played each other last year. After all, NFL receivers are gonna be more like Blackmon than like the average college receiver. But on the other side of ESPN, the scouts guys make an interesting point about that performance:
"Biggest matchup problem was versus Justin Blackmon (Oklahoma State) in 2010 but Amukamara did not play as poorly as many seem to think. Blackmon pushed off on a 36-yard catch in 2nd QTR. Amukamara runs step-for-step with Blackmon on a debatable 2nd QTR pass interference penalty.And while Amukamara does get beaten for an 80-yard TD on a 2nd QTR flea-flicker, he shows recovery speed to get back into the play. From that point on, Blackmon was targeted three times versus Amukamara and caught one pass for three yards."

So it looks like I was wrong with some of my earlier concerns, hopefully the Prince works out!
