Fantasy Football NFL Draft Preview – NFC North

NFC North

Fantasy Football NFL Draft Preview

We’re less than a week away from the highly anticipated NFL Draft and it’s time to monitor what improvements the teams can do with some critical acquisition. FanPick will be providing a special  draft contest for you starting on April 28th 2016. This Fantasy Football NFL Draft preview is brought you by FanPicks.com.

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears will need to get stronger in defense if they want to close in on their NFC North rivals this upcoming season. Their head coach John Fox as well as their defensive coordinator Vic Fangio hope to find a pass rusher that they’ll be able to pair with Pernell McPhee. This is most likely their most important priority. So far, they’ve upgraded their front 7 through free agency with the signing of Danny Trevathan, Jerrell Freeman and Akiem Hicks. It’s also likely that they recruit at the corner back position.

Top 3 round picks: 11th and 41st, 72nd selections.

Detroit Lions

Detroit are in the need of serious play maker. Riley Reiff was built to become a right tackle or a guard. They will also need a tone-setter in the middle of the defense. They will also try finding a book-end pass rusher a priority.

Top 3 round picks: 16th and 46th, 77th selections.

Green Bay Packers

The Packers have played Clay Matthews all over the field but they must recruit another big man like him either in the inside or outside. Offensively speaking, they’re fine but should still look for a swing tackle that can play on either side. Green Bay are always looking for a good tight end.

Top 3 round picks: 27th and 57th, 88th selections.

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings are quietly emerging in the NFC as a contender a large part due to their awesome running game and super athletic defensive players. In order to close out that gap between the heavyweight in the conference, they will need to solidify their receiver position. A top of the line receiver would be ideal to complement Teddy Bridgewater and take them to the next level.

Top 3 round picks: 23rd and 54th, 86th selections.
