In this episode:

Eric Eager from Pro Football Focus joined Jayson Brown to grade how the NFC North performed in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Vikings and General Manager, Rick Spielman, did a remarkable job finding player and maneuvering the draft to increase value in 2020 and in future drafts. Eric called Rick’s performance “masterful” and said Rick drafted like his job was on the line.

We then spent a bit of time mocking the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers for their head-scratching draft strategies before Eric laid out a case for why Detroit might be a dark horse team in the North if they can stay healthy.
