2012 NFL Mock Draft: Cardinals Bolster Defense, Select DE Marvin Ingram

Months to weeks, weeks to days, days to hours; the 2012 NFL draft is slowing creeping closer and closer.

But the Mock Draft's are still coming hot off the presses, like this one from our friends over at National Football Post, who really like DE/OLB Melvin Ingram out of The University of South Carolina as the top choice for the Arizona Cardinals this year.

Here's National Football Post's Wes Bunting with the commentary:

Ingram has the ability to play with his hand on the ground or rush off the edge from a two-point stance. He's a sudden pass rusher with natural change of direction skills, long arms and could offer some talent and versatility to the Cardinals defense on third down.

The Arizona Cardinals are no doubt looking to land some gifted athletes that can help the team for a long time to come, but so is everyone else in the league. If a player the caliber of Ingram was still available at No. 13, it would certainly behoove them to take him in that spot.
