2012 NFL Mock Draft: It's Never Too Early To Speculate

Well, ladies and gentlemen, the 2011 National Football League Draft has been in the books for all of about 12 or 13 hours. . .which means that it's only logical that we move on to the 2012 NFL Draft, right?

The folks at the mothership at SB Nation have already done just that, as they've already got their first 2012 NFL Mock Draft available for your viewing pleasure.

The bad news. . .this mock draft, with where it has the NFC North teams places, implies two things. . .that the Green Bay Packers will again win the Super Bowl (not happening) and the Minnesota Vikings will finish in last place in the division (also not happening). So, now that we've determined that those portions are inaccurate, let's take a look at who this draft has the Vikings selecting with the 11th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

11. Minnesota Vikings: Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa. The Vikings didn't address their offensive line enough in 2011. Reiff, a junior, comes from Iowa's pro-ready farm system, where everyone is seemingly coveted.

Well, at least they don't have us in the Andrew Luck sweepstakes, I guess. . .that's a positive.
