With free agency set to kick off in a matter of days and with NFL teams able to speak with available players over the weekend, you can rest assured that this year's top free agents will not remain unemployed for long.
Though this year's draft class is considered to be one of the deepest in recent history, you can still expect a spending frenzy at 4 p.m. ET on March 11, when the free agent market officially opens.
With rookie salaries held low by the rookie wage scale and with an all-time high $133 million salary cap in play, virtually every team will find a reason to open up its proverbial pocket book in free agency.
However, there is a big difference between going all-in to fill a glaring need and tossing around cash in free agency just because a team can afford to do so (just ask Dan Snyder). With that in mind, we will take a look at each NFL franchise and identify one position that must be targeted during this year's free agency period.
In order to determine a position for each team, we will consider current roster needs, the strength of the needed positions in free agency and the likelihood of the team targeting/landing an impact player at the position early in May's draft.
