NFL Draft Grades: NFC North Is Having A Productive Draft (Video)

The NFC North has had a solid NFL Draft to this point, with the Packers leading the way in SB Nation's NFL Draft grades. The Packers received an A, while the Bears, Lions and Vikings all received B's.

Check out SB Nation's NFL Draft grades, and view the video for more analysis.

Packers: A little pre-emptive love for this draft, even though there may not be any stars here. I think the Packers have three starters with the first three picks, and they're all solid values. Starting with Nick Perry, Jerel Worthy in the 2nd round and Casey Hayward, who some had late 1st round buzz, in the 3rd round.

Bears: Shea McClellin was a bit of a reach. Alshon Jeffery was not. Nice value in Round 2 on Jeffery, a boom-or-bust player.

Lions: Riley Reiff is a starting quality offensive tackle. Ryan Broyles could need some time to get ready after his injury.

Vikings: Matt Kalil is a sure thing. Trading back into the 1st round for Harrison Smith wasn't a great move. Josh Robinson might be more talented than him.

Rounds 4-7 of the NFL Draft come on Saturday afternoon.
