One last mocking glance

We've been following the mock drafts of ESPN analysts Mel Kiper and Todd McShay/Scouts Inc. all spring, so it's probably appropriate to take a look at their final efforts here on draft day. You'll need ESPN Insider subscriptions to see both posts, but I'm authorized to give you a look at the NFC North-related picks. I've also added the representative picks from Dallas Morning News reporter Rick Gosselin, whose draft-day mock is annually one of the most accurate in the country:

Detroit Lions

Scouts: Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh

Kiper: Suh

Gosselin: Suh

Seifert comment: For what it's worth, this seems to be a national consensus.

Green Bay Packers

Scouts: USC tackle Charles Brown

Kiper: Idaho guard Mike Iupati

Gosselin: TCU linebacker Jerry Hughes

Seifert comment: I would take Iupati over Brown, but the Packers might go for Hughes over either.

Minnesota Vikings

Scouts: Rutgers cornerback Devin McCourty

Kiper: Florida quarterback Tim Tebow

Gosselin: Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen

Seifert comment: I think coach Brad Childress honestly respects and would like to have Tebow. I'm also not convinced the Lito Sheppard signing would change the Vikings' direction on cornerbacks.

Chicago Bears (third round)

Scouts: Florida safety Major Wright

Gosselin: Wright

Seifert comment: Safety is a top need and a good position to draft in the third round.
