NFL post-draft Power Rankings: NFC North

May, 1, 2012
PM ET's post-draft Power Rankings didn't yield massive changes, and the NFC North remains the second-highest rated division after the NFC East. But for what it's worth, the draft led our committee of power rankers (of which I am not a member) to give a slight nudge down to a pair of our teams.

The details:

3. Green Bay Packers
No change from March
Comment: Last season's Super Bowl participants, the New York Giants and New England Patriots, are the only teams our committee deemed more powerful.

9. Detroit Lions
Down two from March
Comment: Guess not everyone agreed with the decision to draft Oklahoma receiver Ryan Broyles, huh?

11. Chicago Bears
Down one from March
Comment: What? An undersized defensive end as a first-round pick didn't excite anyone? (For what it's worth, Shea McClellin perfectly fits the profile that defensive line coach Rod Marinelli seeks.)

31. Minnesota Vikings
No change from March
Comment: Only the overhauled Indianapolis Colts rank lower.
