Mel Kiper 2012 NFL Mock Draft 2.0

ESPN's Mel Kiper, Jr. updated his 2012 NFL Mock Draft today, with the only change in the top ten picks being at number eight with the Carolina Panthers. In the first mock from Kiper, he had the Panthers taking Dre Kirkpatrick, the cornerback from Alabama. Now, Kiper projects the Panthers to take Michael Brockers, the defensive tackle from LSU.

As for the Miami Dolphins, with the ninth pick, Kiper still anticipates Riley Reiff, the tackle from Iowa State. About the choice, Kiper writes:

"The Dolphins made big improvments to the offensive line last year with their first-round pick, and Reiff would offer them an immediate starter and make the offensive line a big strength. Reiff's tape was exceptional this past season, and he has a lot of experience and a proven ability against top competition. The Dolphins were very close to being a good team in 2011, and I do think they can target a player on offense, although help at outside linebacker also makes sense. The Dolphins could be another team looking for options at quarterback, but even if they go into the season with Matt Moore back as starter, Reiff adds further stability to an offense that could continue to improve."
