Todd McShay says Alabama's Jonathan Allen has shoulder issues, but is a top-5 talent if healthy. (1:09)

The NFL draft is two weeks away, and there's no better time than the present to take a closer look at which prospects make sense for each team.

We'll go through each division to pair prospects for each team on Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 of the draft. (Even if a team does not have a pick on a given day -- example: the Patriots on Day 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 a need and/or fit what each team likes to do schematically.

Here's a breakdown of the NFC North.
