2014 NFL Draft: Needs and Targets for Teams After First Week of Free Agency
John Raoux/Associated Press

The first week of free agency has come and gone with more than a handful of teams filling major needs and altering what their plans on draft day will likely entail.

While a handful of top free agents are still remaining, the reshuffling of feature players has likely subsided for now, and for many teams that spent heavily in free agency, the draft will be their next step in turning their franchise around or keeping the team in playoff contention.

Here's the updated top three needs for each team after the first week of free agency, with the potential early-rounder they can draft to fill that need. I sorted the needs by position (offense, then defense), outside of a few circumstances in which a team's need was clearly not on par with the others, in which case, it was listed last.

In some cases, the prospects listed are immediate starters who have the talent and playmaking ability to be true difference-makers from Day 1. Other prospects have the upside to be impact players down the road, while others are fully capable of providing youthful depth to solidify a weak unit.
