A Look At The NFC North After 1st Round

Posted by cjsiewert on April 23, 2010 – 1:35 pm

As we wait for the 2nd and 3rd rounds to get here, let’s take a look back at the 1st round and see how the NFC North fared.

The 4 NFC North teams came away from the 1st round with a total of 3 selections. The Detroit Lions selected DT Ndamukong Suh with the 2nd overall selection, Green Bay selected OT Brian Bulaga with 23rd pick and then the Lions jumped back into the 1st round – via trade with the Vikings – to grab RB Jahvid Best.

That leaves 2 NFC North teams who not make a 1st round selection – the Vikings traded the 30th overall pick to Detroit and Chicago entered Thursday without a top selection because of its trade last year with the Denver Broncos to acquire QB Jay Cutler.

With all of that that in mind, it’s easy to see that the Lions made out pretty well with both of their 1st round selections; Suh and Best look to have the potential to be franchise-type players for the Lions.

Now the question is, which team will make out best with its selections in the remaining 6 rounds?

Here’s a look at what picks remain for each team in the NFC North:

Minnesota:

Round 2, Pick 2 (34) (From Lions)
Round 2, Pick 30 (62)
Round 3, Pick 29 (93)
Round 4, Pick 2 (100) (From Lions)
Round 5, Pick 30 (161)
Round 5, Pick 36 (167) (Compensatory selection)
Round 6, Pick 30 (199)
Round 7, Pick 7 (214) (From Browns through Lions)
Round 7, Pick 30 (237)

Chicago:

Round 3, Pick 12 (75)

Round 4, Pick 11 (109)

Round 5, Pick 10 (141)

Round 6, Pick 12 (181)

Round 7, Pick 11 (218)

Detroit:

Round 3, Pick 2 (66)

Round 4, Pick 30 (128) (From Vikings)

Round 7, Pick 6 (213) (From Seahawks)

Round 7, Pick 13 (220) (From Broncos)

Round 7, Pick 48 (255) (Compensatory selection) – This is the last pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Green Bay:

Round 2, Pick 24 (56)

Round 3, Pick 23 (86)

Round 4, Pick 24 (122)

Round 5, Pick 23 (154)

Round 5, Pick 38 (169) (Compensatory selection)

Round 6, Pick 24 (193)

Round 7, Pick 23 (230)

    Good choice by the vikes to trade down and gain some picks. the lions got some key players already but they still need alot of work..not so worried about them next season as i am 2-3 years from now. they still have alot of catch up to do to compete with the vikes/packs/bears.
