I've caught up enough from last weekend's absence to bring you a Black and Blue version of the mock draft that ESPN.com's Todd McShay is updating around the clock.

You'll need an ESPN Insider subscription to view the entire story, but we have permission to bring you McShay's current choices for the NFC North. Because I can't keep my opinions to myself, I'll add a comment or two below each selection. Let's get to it:

Chicago Bears
No. 18 overall: Maryland receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey
My comment: The right position, as long as quarterback Mark Sanchez is off the board.

Detroit Lions
No. 1 overall: Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford
My comment: I get the feeling Detroit isn't sold on Stafford yet. Maybe that's just me.
No. 20 overall: USC linebacker Clay Matthews Jr.
My comment: This is a good spot for a linebacker, and Matthews had a strong combine.

Green Bay Packers
No. 9 overall: Florida State linebacker/defensive end Everette Brown
My comment: Outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene would get some fresh meat to work with.

Minnesota Vikings
No. 22 overall: Mississippi defensive tackle Peria Jerry
My comment: He could make an immediate impact if starters Kevin Williams and Pat Williams are suspended.
