NFL Draft 2012: The Latest SB Nation Mock Draft Has The Bears Taking WR Michael Floyd

Ryan von Bibber published his newest mock draft at SB Nation today and it gave the Bears Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd. It's a name that should make Bears fans happy. Chicago has been in desperate need of a big target for quarterback Jay Cutler for a few seasons and Floyd would seem to fit the bill perfectly.

Here's what von Bibber has to say about the pick:

19. Chicago Bears, Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

The Bears finally get a big, reliable target for Jay Cutler. Mike Martz is gone, so look for the Bears to run a more traditional offense. You can make the case that they need better blockers first. Adding Floyd gives Chicago a top receiver.

The Indianapolis Colts are pegged to take Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the top overall pick. A proposed trade in the No. 2 slot gives the Washington Redskins Baylor quarterback and Heisman winner Robert Griffin III.
