NFL Mock Draft 2012: Cardinals Select Iowa OT Riley Reiff In First Round

Our friends over at National Football post have been busy doing their due diligence on college football players across the nation, and have created their latest Mock Draft for the 2012 season. According to them, the Arizona Cardinals will select offensive tackle Riley Reiff out of the university of Iowa with their first round pick, 13th pick overall.

NFP's Wes Bunting provides his analysis of the Cardinals selection of Rieff:

Arizona Cardinals: Iowa OT Riley Reiff

The Cardinals have a lack of talent up front and adding a lineman like Reiff who can play a number of spots along the offensive line and win in both the run and pass game is a solid choice at 13.

Seeing that the Cards were 17th and 24th respectfully in passing and rushing yards a game during the 2011-12 season, having a guy like Reiff for extra protection/ hole opening up front would be a great help.
