2013 NFL Draft Predictions: Projecting the NFC North on Day Two

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

APC takes another crack at guessing what the Packers' rivals will do in the draft.

Yesterday's first round got Acme Packing Company's writers off to a mixed start on projecting where the various NFC North teams would go with their selections in the 2013 NFL Draft. Three of the four of us hit on the Detroit Lions' pick of defensive end Ziggy Ansah, but it was pretty unsuccessful afterwards. One writer (Tex) guessed right that the Minnesota Vikings would draft Cordarrelle Patterson, but they had to trade back up for a third first-round pick to do so instead of using their 25th selection.

Hopefully some of us will have better luck today, with three picks set to come off the board for the Packers' rivals. Note that the Vikings traded away their Friday picks in order to move up to take Patterson. Away we go!

Detroit Lions Second-Round Pick (#4, 36 overall)

Writer Player Position School
Tex Jonathan Cyprien S Florida International
Kevin Menelik Watson T Florida State
Jason Menelik Watson T Florida State
Dan Arthur Brown ILB Kansas State

Chicago Bears' Second-Round Pick (#18, 50 overall)

Writer Player Position School
Tex Manti Te'o ILB Notre Dame
Kevin Kevin Minter ILB LSU
Jason Arthur Brown ILB Kansas State
Dan Manti Te'o* ILB Notre Dame

* Note: Dan projected that the Bears will trade up higher in the second round in order to acquire Te'o. I expect that they will be able to draft him with the 50th pick.

Detroit Lions' Third-Round Pick (#3, 65 overall)

Writer Player Position School
Tex Terron Armstead T Arkansas-Pine Bluff
Kevin J.J. Wilcox S Georgia Southern
Jason D.J. Swearinger S South Carolina
Dan Andre Ellington RB Clemson
