2017 NFL Draft: NFC North Round up

NCAA Football: Orange Bowl-Michigan vs Florida State Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

While the Chicago Bears took a lot of head scratching, high ceiling type of picks, I though the other NFC North teams each snagged some immediate help with their first three selections.

The Green Bay Packers picked two defensive backs that will get playing time early, in corner Kevin King (No. 33 overall) and safety Josh Jones (No. 61 overall). Defensive lineman Montravius Adams (No. 93 overall) at an athletic 6’4”, 304 pounds, will play all along their front three.

I’ve really liked the last few drafts by the Detroit Lions. This year they snagged an immediate starter at middle linebacker in Jarrad Davis (No. 21 overall). They got a corner, Teez Tabor (No. 53 overall), that is a better football player than his poor 40 time would suggest. And NIU wide receiver, Kenny Golladay (No. 96 overall), is a player I was hoping the Bears would find a way to pick.

Pride Of Detroit has all the Lions draft coverage you may need.

I hated the Dalvin Cook (No. 41 overall) pick by the Minnesota Vikings. And by hated it, I mean, he’s going to be a load for the Bears in his career. Pat Elflein (No. 70 overall), will end up starting at one of the interior spots on their o-line, and Jaleel Johnson (No. 109 overall) is a high motor 316 pounder that will clog up running lanes.

You can visit the Daily Norseman to see what the Vikes did over draft weekend.

What did you guys think of the other draft classes of the NFC North teams?
