Four Downs: NFC North

The NFL draft may have been a month ago, but we have one last division to review. The Bears get a weapon for Rex Grossman. The Lions stay put and draft the best player on the board. The Packers upset their franchise player but may have still had a good draft. The Vikings draft some quality players but ignore their passing game.

Four Downs: AFC South

Our draft review tour hits the AFC South, where the Colts filled their needs, the Jaguars filled their needs, the Titans did not fill their needs, and the Texans had so many needs that it was impossible to not fill their needs.

Ryan Wilson covers the NFC East's post-draft outlook in the latest Four Downs.

Four Downs: AFC East

The AFC East had an eventful draft, and it's all in the latest edition of Four Downs. Two of the teams made solid trades, and two of them made questionable first-round reaches but helped the cause with productive later picks. Bill Barnwell has all the details.

Four Downs: AFC North

Jaff Bathurst returns for a post-draft recap of the AFC North. The Ravens got players at the positions they needed, the Bengals got guys who aren't on the prison track, which they needed, the Browns got what everyone thought they needed, and the Steelers got linebackers, which they always think they need.

Four Downs: NFC South

It was a great draft for the NFC South. Carolina and Atlanta loaded up on talent, Tampa Bay did some heavy rebuilding on the defensive side of the ball, and the Saints went small-school shopping again, after an SEC pitstop in Tennessee.

Four Downs: AFC West

Michael David Smith takes a look at the AFC West's draft. We all know the Raiders took JaMarcus Russell first overall, but how about Oakland's wild fourth round? Mike Shanahan clearly loves the Florida defensive line, Kansas City's secondary is just as old as it ever was, and the Chargers took a receiver from LSU when the fans would have preferred a receiver from USC.

Four Downs: AFC North

Jeff Bathurst is back to recap the AFC North. The division has played a little bit of free agency musical chairs, and the Browns won, getting Eric Steinbach from the Bengals and ... uh, Jamal Lewis from the Ravens. But at least they won't be fighting the rest of the division for the privilege of drafting from the same group of linebackers. See what all this healthy competition is about in the latest Four Downs.
