Cards watch: Reiff, Floyd make it past Bills
By Mike Sando
The Buffalo Bills' thinking at No. 10 in the 2012 draft had the potential to affect the Arizona Cardinals three picks later.
Both teams have needs at offensive tackle and wide receiver.
But with the Bills using the 10th choice for cornerback Stephon Gilmore, the Cardinals' pick approached with tackle Riley Reiff and receiver Michael Floyd both available. Kansas City (11th) and Seattle (12th) stand between Arizona and having a shot at those players.
Tackle is the bigger need for Arizona, in my view. How will the Cardinals value Reiff against the other available players?
Also: With linebacker Luke Kuechly going to Carolina at No. 9, the Seahawks appear more likely to address linebacker later than No. 12.
