NFL Draft Grades: NFC North Teams Had A Good Draft (Video)

The NFC North has been one of the better divisions in the NFL Draft in recent years, with both the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions stocking their team with talent through the draft. Both teams had solid drafts on paper, with the Packers selecting Nick Perry and Jerel Worthy with their first two picks and the Lions finding their future tackle, Riley Reiff, with their first pick. The Minnesota Vikings moved back one spot, acquired more picks, and still got the guy they wanted in Matt Kalil. The Chicago Bears found a versatile defender in Shea McClellin in Round 1.

The best draft in the NFC North: I'll have to give the benefit of the doubt to GM Ted Thompson and the Packers, who always seem to win the draft. They improved their defensive line with the first two picks.
