NFL Mock Draft 2012: Walterfootball says Matt Kalil, Justin Blackmon, Riley Reiff All Possibilities

Walterfootball has a new 2012 NFL Mock Draft out and there's not a great many surprises on it. Andrew Luck is still first overall, the Cleveland Browns are still trading up to get Robert Griffin III and the Minnesota Vikings at number three are still taking USC tackle Matt Kalil. He does shake things a bit this time by including some 'other possibilities', and they would certainly be slightly more interesting.

Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon has been in the conversation for the Vikings for a while as a top prospect to catch Christian Ponder's passes, but Iowa tackle Riley Reiff isn't usually a part of the conversation as his talent usually has him dropping somewhere in the low tens or early teens in the draft. But someone else on the internet said it could happen, so it must be true!

Thanks to perhaps all of the gamma rays he's been in contact with, the Sun Tan Man slotted Riley Reiff to the Vikings in his recent mock draft, so I suppose I should list this as a possibility. After all, Minnesota might be stupid, and could pass on a superior talent, instead opting to reach for a need.
