With the No. 13 pick in the 2012 Cincy Jungle Mock Draft, the Arizona Cardinals select...

Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa

This pick came down to the two players, Riley Reiff and Dontari Poe. The major needs I could identify were O-line, D-line and Wide Receiver and with both Floyd and Blackman gone, wide out was out of the question. The top two players left to chose from couldn't be further from each other when you evaluate them, one was all POE-tental and Reiff was polished and NFL ready in the run game but how high is his ceiling?

The determining factor was the tackle that the Cards have now in levi brown. Earlier this off season the tackle was released and resigned at a cap friendly number but he still fits the right side better than the left and if Reiff reaches his potential as a pass blocker then the team could make that switch. By adding Reiff the Cards would instantly upgrade the right side run blocking and would give the team and Kevin kolb some security. Getting a starting caliber tackle at 13 would be a coup for any team but I will almost guarantee that in real life Riley Reiff will be long gone by 13. Oh and GO BENGALS!

Riley Reiff Highlights:

Joe Goodberry's Instant Analysis:

The Cardinals are in desperate need of a franchise OT. I don't know if Reiff is exactly that, but I'm certain he's a starting NFL lineman who should be very solid for years. They needed to protect Kevin Kolb at all costs and Reiff should help.
Grade: B
