It's never too early to start looking ahead to next year's draft.
OK, this statement may not necessarily hold true, especially for those teams that still have a stake in this season's playoff race.
With three weeks to go in the 2013 regular season, however, we feel pretty confident that now is an appropriate time to begin analyzing the 2014 draft.
More specifically, it is time to start assessing the needs of each team heading into next year's draft.
The following assessments are based on each team's current makeup (prior to free agency) and using traditional NFL wisdom (for example, running back as a need, though teams may not consider the position a priority on draft day).
All set? Get your personal draft board ready (comments are always encouraged), and let's dig in.
