NFL Mock Draft 2012: Will Cardinals Pounce If Justin Blackmon Drops To 13?

NFLDraftScout.com and CBSSports.com's Dane Brugler published his most recent mock draft on Monday and had a very interesting player fall to the Arizona Cardinals at the 13th pick. Per Brugler:

13. Arizona Cardinals
Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State: The Cardinals need to address several needs along the offensive line and on defense, but a talent like Blackmon might be too good to pass up at No. 13. Arizona has been searching for a productive compliment to Larry Fitzgerald since Anquan Boldin left and Blackmon would certainly fill that need. It just happens to be a coincidence that the player Blackmon is most compared to is Boldin.

With many mock drafts predicting Blackmon won't make it out of the top-5, landing a potentially elite wide receiver to put opposite Larry Fitzgerald might be a great move for the Cardinals, not to mention Kevin Kolb. As Brugler notes, many analysts have compared Blackmon to former Cardinal Anquan Boldin, and the Cardinals know first hand how effective two top-tier receivers can do for your offense.
