NFL Mock Draft 2012: Cardinals Select WR Michael Floyd According To Don Banks' Final Mock

With the 2012 NFL Draft about 24 hours away, Sports Illustrated Don Banks has released his final mock draft, version 7.0, and has the Arizona Cardinals selecting wide receiver Michael Floyd out Notre Dame.

Here is Banks with the commentary:

While the Cardinals would go for a Cordy Glenn or a Riley Reiff if they were drafting by a need-first approach, they'll be instead pleasantly surprised that a playmaker like Floyd has fallen to them. That'll make Larry Fitzgerald happy, and if you think Ken Whisenhunt and the Cardinals front office don't care about that, you haven't been paying attention.

Picking up a player the caliber of Floyd would be a great pick up for any squad in the first round, especially a team like the Cardinals, who could add another deep threat to Larry Fitzgerald to help lengthen the field.
