So awhile ago, I posted an article/poll about the Cards' draft needs for 2012. It can be found by clicking here. There were 90 votes on the poll, (thank you for participating). The majority of those votes were for the OT position. (54/90) Which segues perfectly into the Cards 1st round draft pick for 2012, as seen from the folks at NFLsFuture. The link to their 2012 mock is here.
They have the Cards picking at spot #22 (Winning the division BTW). And with that 22nd pick, they selected Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa. They have him valued at a 2nd round pick that the Cards will reach for due to need. In watching him play, he displays good pass blocking technique. He keeps his feet moving. In the run blocking game, he excels in a downhill scheme. (He has also had the benefit of lining up opposite Adrian Clayborn for practice) At 6'6" and 300 lbs, he is a junior with 2 years eligibility left, but if he declares, the Cards may have found their answer at the LT position.
See Riley in action here.
Let me know what you think in the poll below.
