The 2013 NFL draft has all but arrived, and with it comes the hopes and dreams of each franchise's fanbase for the future, not to mention those sitting in the front office of each team calling the shots.
Entering the NFL draft, each franchise has a dream scenario that, if it happens to work out, will potentially set the team on the path to turning things around in one way or another.
A dream scenario for a team in the NFL draft can be as simple as having that one can't-miss prospect fall to their selection; for others, perhaps, it's finding a way to trade up or down at the last second—down to avoid having to pick and up to jump ahead of other teams threatening to take their guy.
Dream scenarios rarely pan out over the course of an NFL draft, and even if they do, we typically do not know for a few years down the line.
In the following slideshow, we will attempt to identify each franchise's dream scenario based on team needs and recent news, as well as break down the chances of the scenario actually coming to fruition.
Let's take a look.
