6. Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings upgraded their WR2 position by drafting USC's Jordan Addison in the first round. Addison and All-Pro Justin Jefferson give Minnesota a talented receiving duo, ensuring its passing offense should again rank near the top of the league.

However, questions will be asked of a defense that finished No. 31 against the pass last season. Did the Vikings do enough to improve on this side of the ball? That's the question that will determine whether they can repeat last season's 13-4 record.

5. Chicago Bears

You might be a little surprised to see the Chicago Bears ranked so high, but they deserve credit for their offseason so far. They focused on surrounding Justin Fields with more talent, and it's a job well done. Chicago has a talented receiving corps with D.J. Moore, Darnell Mooney, Chase Claypool, rookie Tyler Scott, Cole Kmet, and former Packer Robert Tonyan.

They also upgraded the offensive line by drafting Darnell Wright in the first round.

Chicago upgraded its roster in free agency and the draft. Can the Bears become NFC North contenders?

4. New York Giants

The New York Giants reached the divisional round last season, and they have a chance to improve on that after a solid offseason. They've added talent on offense, trading for tight end Darren Waller before drafting wide receiver Jalin Hyatt and center John Michael Schmitz.

They also upgraded their defense by selecting cornerback Deonte Banks in the first round. The Giants should be playoff contenders again this season.
