DT Stephen Paea
Best Pick: Paea. Originally considering Paea in the first round, Chicago's patience paid off and may have brought them a replacement for Tommie Harris toward the end of the second round.
Worst Pick: Enderle. One April after wasting a choice on a developmental passer that was almost immediately cut, Central Michigan's Dan LeFevour, the Bears cast aside needs at receiver and corner for a third-string QB.
Analysis: Carimi and Paea were both incredible values and also plugged the roster's biggest holes, but Conte was taken at least a round too early and the Enderle selection is nothing short of a head scratcher.

RB Mikel Leshoure
Best Pick: It's easy to pick Fairley, who gets to line up next to Defensive Rookie of the Year Ndamukong Suh, but Leshoure is the between-the-tackles pounder needed to complement the shifty Jahvid Best.
Worst Pick: Culbreth, if for no other reason than the fact that the offensive line should have been addressed much earlier, as evidenced clearly by Matthew Stafford and his surgically-repaired shoulder.
Analysis: Even if the Lions already had a tremendous defensive line and should have taken better care of the linebacker and cornerback positions, nobody envisioned Fairley being there and giving them a chance to build their own "Williams Wall."

Green Bay Packers
TE D.J. Williams
Round 1: Mississippi State OT Derek Sherrod
Round 2: Kentucky WR Randall Cobb
Round 3: Hawaii RB Alex Green
Round 4: New Mexico State CB Davon House
Round 5: Arkansas TE D.J. Williams
Round 6a: Utah OT Caleb Schlauderaff
Round 6b: Appalachian State LB D.J. Smith
Round 6c: Arizona DE Ricky Elmore
Round 7a: North Carolina TE Ryan Taylor
Round 7b: Arizona State DT Lawrence Guy
Best Pick: Cobb. The ultimate jack-of-all-trades during his time in college, he'll open the playbook even wider for coach Mike McCarthy and becomes yet another weapon in the passing game for Aaron Rodgers.
Worst Pick: Guy. Not that he is a poor prospect or anything of that nature, but with Cullen Jenkins and Johnny Jolly both having likely played their last game in green and gold, five-technique end could be an issue.
Analysis: Ted Thompson worked his best-player-available magic and was rewarded time and time again, as Sherrod can take over for Chad Clifton, Green means the end of Brandon Jackson, House provides defensive coordinator Dom Capers with another big body in the secondary and Williams replaces Donald Lee.

QB Christian Ponder
Round 1: Florida State QB Christian Ponder
Round 2: Notre Dame TE Kyle Rudolph
Round 4: Iowa DT Christian Ballard
Round 5: Utah CB Brandon Burton
Round 6a: Arkansas OT DeMarcus Love
Round 6b: South Florida CB Mistral Raymond
Round 6c: Slippery Rock C Brandon Fusco
Round 6d: Ohio State LB Ross Homan
Round 7a: Arizona DE D'Aundre Reed
Round 7b: West Texas A&M WR Stephen Burton
Best Pick: Rudolph. The No. 1 player on the board at his position, it's wise to get a short- and intermediate-range security blanket for a young QB -- Visanthe Shiancoe is going into the final year of his contract, too.
Worst Pick: Love. He is not going to provide immediate help for an offensive line that sorely needs it, especially with the aging and overrated Bryant McKinnie at left tackle.
Analysis: While Rudolph, Ballard and Burton were all admirable value selections in the second, fourth and fifth round, respectively, Minnesota's 2010 class ultimately comes down to whether or not Ponder proves to be worthy of his draft position.
