This draft sure was exiting and I decided to do some daft grades on the NFC North.

Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions got a good pick in Mathew Stafford. If I were the Lions, I would have picked Jason Smith. I was reading one of Josh Dhani's articles and it said, "The Detroit Lions almost made the playoffs a few years ago. The reason they did not, their blocking." 

Grade: B+

Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings got Percy Harvin a much-needed playmaker. The reason I gave them a C+ is because they needed someone better that Phil Loadholt at guard. Probably a guy like Ebben Britton.

Grade: C+

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears traded away their first-round pick for Jay Cutler. I gave them a C because, like the Vikings, they needed a playmaker for their crappy offense.

Grade: C

Green Bay Packers

To make a long story short, the Green Bay Packers drafted good players in the first round. The rest of the draft was a bust. 

Grade: C


Thanks for reading and read more of my articles.The idea of this article was from my brother, who gave me the Packers' grade. He was also nagging me because I was using his computer.
