With the NFL season set to kick off, a few things are coming into focus.
Some teams have the look of a hapless franchise in the middle of a multi-year rebuilding plan, while others are still firing on all cylinders. Some are adjusting well to new personnel and coaches; some are still a work in progress, and an early 2013 NFL draft order can be divined from these outward indicators.
Likewise, the first weekend of college football is upon us, and going in we can have a good idea of who sits atop the draft class—at least before the games are played. Put these together, and we can peer into the future and try to guess what kind of help teams will get in the first round of next year's NFL draft.
