2016 Draft Kit

2011 Offseason Team Needs: NFC North

This is a continuation of the offseason teams needs series.  This time we focus our attention on the NFC North.

Green Bay Packers

QB- Aaron Rodgers

RB- Ryan Grant, James Starks

WR- Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, James Jones, Jordy Nelson

TE- Jermichael Finley

Needs – The Super Bowl Champion Packers are young at all the major skill positions.  Grant is aging but James Starks showed he is an adequate runner down the stretch and in the postseason run.

Chicago Bears

QB- Jay Cutler

RB- Matt Forte, Chester Taylor???

WR- Devin Hester, Johnny Knox, Earl Bennett

TE- Greg Olsen

Needs – They need a complimentary back to Matt Forte.  Perhaps a power back for short yardage situations.  John Clay anyone.  They also need to get a more elite wide receiver for Jay Cutler either via the draft or free agency.

Minnesota Vikings

QB- Joe Webb

RB- Adrian Peterson, Toby Gerhart

WR- Sidney Rice???, Percy Harvin, Bernard Berrian

TE- Visanthe Schiancoe

Needs – The team definitely needs to take a hard look at the quarterback position this offseason.  That only goes without figuring after the retirement of Brett Favre.  The team must also work to resign Sidney Rice or that could leave a hole at wide receiver.  They can feel adequate with Schiancoe at tight end.

Detroit Lions

QB- Matthew Stafford

RB- Jahvid Best, Kevin Smith

WR- Calvin Johnson, Nate Burleson

TE- Brandon Pettigrew

Needs-  The team could use a second receiver, however they need to continue to build up the defense and offensive line and should use most of the draft picks they have at those positions.
