Now that free agency is about two weeks old and the teams that had money to spend did the spending, it’s time for a quick peak ahead to May 8-10.
Those are the days that the National Football League will conduct the 79th Annual Selection Meeting.
It is also known as the 2014 NFL draft.
So what could teams be looking for in terms of a specific position, hence a question to answer when it comes to helping their rosters?
We will do our best to answer. Please note this is not a first-round mock draft. It is simply a suggestion that each team comes out of May’s draft with a player or players at the listed position that will be pivotal to the team’s fortunes in 2014…and perhaps beyond. It also means that we are not necessarily saying that the team uses its first-round pick (if they have one) on filling that need.
