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)
|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)
|Tex||Manti Te'o||ILB||Notre Dame|
|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)
|Tex||Terron Armstead||T||Arkansas-Pine Bluff|
|Kevin||J.J. Wilcox||S||Georgia Southern|
|Jason||D.J. Swearinger||S||South Carolina|
