Now that free agency is all but finished and team needs are much more settled than they were a month ago, it's time to turn our attention to the NFL draft.

We'll be going division by division to break down which prospects make sense for each team on Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 of the draft. (Even if a team does not have a pick in a given round -- example: the Patriots in Round 1 -- we'll still recommend a player, as trades can always change the draft order.) Important note: This is not a mock draft. We aren't predicting where players will land. Rather, we're identifying a few prospects who fill needs and/or fit what each team likes to do schematically.

Here's a breakdown of the NFC North.
