Which other NFC North team had the best weekend?


Would you believe most NFL teams have first and second round picks? Yeah, what a concept. After having no first or second round selections the last two years, us Bears fans won't know what to do before the 2011 Draft. Comparing the Chicago draft to any other team is senseless, but comparing the Drafts of the other three NFC North teams to each other could be interesting. So that's my question to you today. After the jump I'll list the entire results from the weekends draft for those other North teams.

Detroit Lions

Round 1, Pick 2 (2) Ndamukong Suh DT 6'4" 307 Nebraska
Round 1, Pick 30 (30) Jahvid Best RB 5'10" 199 California
Round 3, Pick 2 (66) Amari Spievey CB 5'11" 195 Iowa
Round 4, Pick 30 (128) Jason Fox OT 6'7" 303 Miami
Round 7, Pick 6 (213) Willie Young DE 6'5" 251 North Carolina State
Round 7, Pick 48 (255) Tim Toone WR 5'10" 175 Weber State

Obviously Suh has the potential to be a pain in the butt for Chicago for the next 10 years, but Best will see time as a rookie (maybe even as the starter), and I think Spievey will also get on the field for the Lions in 2010.

Green Bay Packers

Round 1, Pick 23 (23) Bryan Bulaga OT 6'5" 314 Iowa
Round 2, Pick 24 (56) Mike Neal DT 6'3" 294 Purdue
Round 3, Pick 7 (71) Morgan Burnett SS 6'1" 209 Georgia Tech
Round 5, Pick 23 (154) Andrew Quarless TE 6'4" 254 Penn State
Round 5, Pick 38 (169) Marshall Newhouse OT 6'4" 319 TCU
Round 6, Pick 24 (193) James Starks RB 6'2" 218 Buffalo
Round 7, Pick 23 (230) C.J. Wilson DE 6'3" 290 East Carolina

Bulaga will be a starting tackle before seasons end. Neal is a guy I thought could slip to the Bears. Burnett was a fast riser that will compete for a starting position in Green Bay. Newhouse is another player I thought the Bears may target.

Minnesota Vikings

Round 2, Pick 2 (34) Chris Cook CB 6'2" 212 Virginia
Round 2, Pick 19 (51) Toby Gerhart RB 6'0" 231 Stanford
Round 4, Pick 2 (100) Everson Griffen DE 6'3" 273 Southern Cal
Round 5, Pick 30 (161) Chris Degeare OT 6'4" 325 Wake Forest
Round 5, Pick 36 (167) Nathan Triplett LB 6'3" 250 Minnesota
Round 6, Pick 30 (199) Joe Webb QB 6'3" 223 UAB
Round 7, Pick 7 (214) Mickey Shuler TE 6'4" 251 Penn State
Round 7, Pick 30 (237) Ryan D'Imperio LB 6'2" 230 Rutgers

Cook is a big corner that some thought could switch to safety in the NFL, but I like his size at CB. Gerhart was a popular name here on the threads and could become the goal line back for them. Griffen is an athletic player that fell in their laps and will see spot duty rushing the passer. Look for Webb to become a WR.
