On episode No. 66 of The Draft Analysts, Chris Tripodi and Tony Pauline complete their NFC North draft reviews with the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings. They discuss a pair of questionable first-round picks for Green Bay despite the fact that the Packers added talented prospects in former Michigan defensive end Rashan Gary and ex-Maryland safety Darnell Savage, a nice bounceback from the team on Day 2 and a couple interesting third-day selections. The duo then breaks down Minnesota’s draft, which featured several trades back to accumulate picks, some fortification for the team’s offensive line and skill positions and several Day 3 prospects who could wind up on the active roster.
