Mock 4.0 from Kiper/McShay

By Kevin Seifert

With the draft two weeks and a day away (!), ESPN analysts Mel Kiper and Todd McShay gave us their latest take on the first round. You'll need an Insider subscription to view all 32 picks, but I have the distinct privilege of bringing you everything NFC North-related:

Detroit Lions (No. 2)
Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh
McShay: Suh
Seifert comment: The Lions can't avoid taking the best player in the draft.

Green Bay Packers (No. 23)
Idaho guard Mike Iupati
McShay: USC tackle Charles Brown
Seifert comment: A bit high to take a guard, but Iupati is a monster. Kiper is not a big Brown fan, but he is in the minority on that opinion.

Minnesota Vikings (No. 30)
USC safety Taylor Mays
McShay: Alabama cornerback Kareem Jackson
Seifert comment: All things equal, I would prefer a cornerback over a safety here. But used correctly, Mays could be special.
