We are getting close to the start of Day 3, but before we do, let us take a look at how the NFC North is stacking up through two days of the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Chicago Bears have watched 106 picks come off the board since the start of the 2020 NFL Draft just two days ago. Out of those 106 picks, Ryan Pace has only been involved with two. Now, to be fair, even if he had his “original” picks (first, second, third), that would only have given him one additional pick. Many teams have only had three picks and at least Pace’s first two picks should see playing time rather quickly.

Comparing the Chicago Bears draft to the rest of the NFL is not as important as it is to compare Pace’s picks to the rest of the NFC North. Going into the NFL Draft, I had the Bears ranked second in the division behind the Packers. Have the Lions or Vikings improved that much more to bump the Chicago Bears from the second spot? No, not yet. Although one of the two is making a strong case as I have loved what that team has done thus far in the draft.

What about the Packers? Have they done enough to stay atop the division? Have they found a way to pull away from the other three teams? It will be interesting to see how all of this plays out over the next two to three years, but for now, here is an early ranking of what the four teams have done thus far.
