These two NFC North rivals play in lands of ice and snow. You’ve got to be tough to make it on the Vikings and the Packers.
So which one had the better draft?
Which team can talk smack and which one is just whack? You tell us!
Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers
The Vikings will look to rebound from missing the playoffs last year, while the Packers are hoping to mount a drive to the Super Bowl. The new infusion of talent will help decide which team will take another step in the right direction and which will flounder.
Minnesota Vikings Draft Highlights:
The Vikings made impressive moves, adding sack-master LB Anthony Barr with their first pick and then trading back into the end of the first round to snatch up QB Teddy Bridgewater. The Vikings also added DL Scott Crichton, RB Jerick McKinnon and OL David Yankey.
Green Bay Packers Draft Highlights:
The Packers methodically filled their most pressing team needs, starting with their first pick: hard-hitting S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Needing more weapons for QB Aaron Rodgers, they added a trio quality WRs in Davante Adams, Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis. The Packers also nabbed TE Richard Rodgers, who could immediately step into the starting role.
