Round 1 of the 2012 NFL Draft is complete, and after a cluster of trades and interesting picks Joel Thorman at SB Nation NFL has handed out NFL Draft Grades for each team in Round One. In the NFC North, Thorman dished out the following marks: the Chicago Bears are saddled with a "C" grade for reaching to get defensive end Shea McClellin at No. 19, the Minnesota Vikings earned a "B" for picking up extra selections and still getting Matt Kalil, the Detroit Lions also grabbed a "B" for taking OT Riley Reiff and the Green Bay Packers snatched a "B" as well for taking Nick Perry.
