2011 NFL Draft: NFC North Team Draft Reviews

The NFC North should be a very competitive division next season based on the results of this year’s draft.

The Chicago Bears added two players in rounds one and two, filling their teams’ biggest needs.  The Vikings shocked everyone by taking Florida State QB Christian Ponder in round one, but they also grabbed a lot of talented players throughout the rest of the draft.  The reigning Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers added depth at a lot of positions, and their offense could be very scary next season.

The best draft of the division has to go to the Detroit Lions, who, with their first pick, added a dynamic defensive lineman out of Auburn in Nick Fairley.  The picks of Boise State WR Titus Young and Illinois RB Mikel Leshoure were excellent choices, and they will make their offense very dangerous.

Here is my pick by pick analysis of every pick by the four NFC North franchises, as well as overall grades for each team.
