I'm Brian Billick and were looking at how the teams stack up by division now -- we've got some separation from the draft. See how they did see we'd put united future and anticipate how of these draft -- might impact this season. You start obviously with the Minnesota Vikings probably still is a complete team mystery is in the National Football League. The Brett Favre question aside of whether Brett Favre gonna come back or not play. Which obviously is a big question but they could approach this draft. Not worrying about Brett Favre -- -- -- to take quarterback they can go ahead take quarterback it's still stacked and in behind Brett Favre. What they did to begin with his address the defense side of the ball a quarterback with Chris cook obviously Antoine Winfield is getting a little on the back end of his career to have that solid secondary presence and have a guy like Antoine Winfield. Kind of coach up a Chris cook from the University of Virginia is a nice combination. They then went with a very uninteresting picked it well with Toby Gerhart from Stamford. Big physical back out of Stanford and the thing that intrigues me about this they loft Chester Taylor to the Chicago Bears a very good third down back. Change -- back with Adrian Peterson with the physical offensive line they have Adrian Peterson and now. -- part to step in. Minnesota Vikings have the potential -- with a good defense that they can -- lead they can come in just basically -- you to death. With the running game sorts going to be a very -- in addition. For Minnesota obviously a huge question is does Brett Favre come back the Green Bay Packers -- -- obviously watch had a great year last year. Their designated leader now Aaron Rodgers had a great year. They were album able to bring in some help on the offensive line which they desperately needed giving a better than 48 sacks on the year. Brian blog out of Iowa it's little little bit some people thought he might be a top ten pick. -- of the twenty -- draft I'm sure it was the proverbial. We can't believe he was there one or pick came but it was a good solid pick this is a guy. That is a guard some people could say tackle I think he's more suited for guard. Will fit the Green Bay Packers system very well very well school coming out of Kirk Francis offense. With the Iowa Hawkeyes. The Detroit Lions again a little like the St. Louis Rams in the Kansas City Chiefs there's very little that they could choose that -- That they want gonna need but they had a very solid draft particularly on the -- adopted -- Along with Gerald Kuwait to almost can't miss interior defense sublime and someone that Jim Schwartz can anchor his defense around going forward. Job at best they actually moved back up into the first round hit a very explosive running back. We had some concessions cushion issues. It's a concern obviously in terms who's had his health. The third doctors obviously signed off on it with them moving back in the first round acquiring the thirty that. -- good job the best university California. And then a -- -- again another player from Iowa. That has done a good size again building on that defense aside the ball. The Chicago Bears you knew they weren't gonna have much going on draft day in that they did have a pick until the seventh the 75 pick of the draft. The third round there -- able to add major right Florida safety may be -- come in and and try to replace what they lost without the loss of Mike Brown. Had a very interest in free agency off all offseason with regard to Julius Peppers. They added Chester Taylor who talked about or where were we talked about Minnesota. I don't know that Chicago either in the draft or free agency was able to address their number one really needs which were wide receiver and in the offensive line. To help Jay Cutler now take that lead that team into the playoffs so. Very extreme division I think the good teams Minnesota and Green Bay got better. I think the team that desperately need to get better Detroit got better I'm not true draft yielded much for the Chicago Bears. And if you want some good summary you might pick in my book more than a game looking at both those things that go one on and off the field particularly in a time. Of collective bargaining agreement and all that's gonna be made of that over the summer. Pick it up you might enjoy.
