While several NFL teams can now start making official postseason plans, many more will turn their attention towards the 2013 NFL Draft.

Well, after they all fire their head coaches, of course. 

Unfortunately for these squads, there isn't quite as much franchise-saving talent in the 2013 class as there was in 2012. 

No quarterbacks who will immediately turn mediocre teams into playoff contenders in a matter of months. No Andrew Luck. No Robert Griffin III. No Russell Wilson. Heck, there might not even be a Doug Martin or Alfred Morris, either. 

Nonetheless, there is still plenty of intrigue heading into the draft.

The depth at QB is nowhere near as impressive as last year's, but West Virginia's Geno Smith is still many pundits' choice for the No. 1 pick with the need to find a signal-caller so crucial for many teams at the top of the draft.

Let's take a look at what organizations will have the best chances to land Smith, Jarvis Jones, Luke Joeckel, Manti Te'o and all the other young potential studs.
