With the 2012 season in the books, for 20 NFL teams it’s time to start looking ahead to the 2013 draft.
“Black Monday” will signal the end for many head coaches and general managers in the league, and disarray will rule the landscape of the league for the next few months.

The 2013 draft picture will change shape ad nauseam by the time April 25 arrives, but one thing will not change: There will be plenty of talent available.
The best teams in the league are teams that draft well year in and year out. Some will draft based on need and others on value. Every team has needs, though.
